Student and community public health update

Laurentian University on-campus academic instruction and student services continue.  Some employees will shift to remote work in accordance with new work-from-home instructions issued by Public Health Sudbury and Districts (PHSD).

Lectures, exams, labs, hands-on instructional activities (including studios), and research activities will continue on campus as scheduled.

Most on-campus events, that are not required for the delivery of academic programs, will be paused or switched to remote delivery.  Conference services will communicate directly with each event organizer to make arrangements to cancel the booking, pause the on-campus event or switch to remote delivery.  

Persons attending campus are reminded to complete the daily COVID-19 Self Screening Questionnaire and to continue to follow health and safety guidance including physical distancing, masking, and hand hygiene.  Health and wellness services remain open to serve the Laurentian community and continue to offer COVID-19 testing. 

We thank you for your on-going cooperation while we work to implement the directive from PHSD.  Questions can be sent to COVID-19@laurentian.ca

 

Cases on Campus

Updated: November 17, 2021

Laurentian University tracks positive cases of COVID-19 that involve members of its university community present on campus. Upon being notified by public health authorities, the University will post notices of positive COVID-19 cases on this page. This report is a general count on active cases impacting our campus. Please note that cases being reported on this page are not necessarily connected with one another.

Cases will be considered closed after 14 days. This dashboard will be updated with a current case count every Wednesday.

  • 2 cases to report at this time

  • 8 cases closed since September 1, 2021

When the University is informed by public health authorities of a confirmed positive COVID-19 case on campus, the University collaborates with them in taking all necessary measures. If public health authorities determine there is a health and safety risk on campus due to a positive case of COVID-19, the University will be provided with directives and appropriate steps will be taken. PHSD will directly notify close-contacts of a confirmed case. The University will adhere to a strict protocol to ensure the identities and privacy of the individuals is duly protected.
