Church Point (NS), September 1 2020 – Yesterday, August 31, a positive case was identified at our Church Point campus.
Public health officials have assessed that the risk of exposure to others as low and, as such, there are no close contacts identified at this time. The positive case will isolate as per usual public health protocols.
This demonstrates why we have a testing strategy in place for postsecondary students. It allows us to detect and manage cases early.
However, this strategy does not replace public health orders and directives - practise good hand washing and other hygiene steps, maintain a physical distance when and where required. Wearing a non-medical mask is mandatory in all our campuses and in most indoor public places.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Université Sainte-Anne has put in place protocols and preventative measures to protect students, staff and our community and will continue to follow them.
The Church Point campus will reopen tomorrow, Wednesday September 2nd.
