COVID-19 case reporting
We continue to record very low positive case counts of COVID-19 in the Capilano University campus community. Between September 1, 2021 and November 12, 2021, only 10 COVID-19 test positive cases and two contacts of test positive cases have been reported by individuals who have attended campus. These were subsequently supported and managed according to our CapU Exposure Control Plan for Communicable Diseases and campus safety protocols.
Aligned with our communicable disease prevention protocols, we continue to track and monitor positive cases as they are reported and work directly with local health authorities to provide further direction to contacts as required. Additional cleaning protocols are implemented in areas where individuals reporting flu-like symptoms have visited. Other steps may involve temporarily suspending activities or shifting a class to online learning for a short period of time where a positive test case of COVID-19 has been confirmed.
The CapU Illness Reporting Process provides complete direction for anyone to report an illness, while ensuring personal medical information is handled in a confidential manner.
