Brock University continues to work closely with Niagara Region Public Health after a COVID-19 outbreak was declared in on-campus student residences.
As of Monday, March 29, 31 residence students have tested positive and are in self-isolation on campus, while a number of additional students are isolating as contact tracing and COVID-19 testing continues.
The University is supporting students with the delivery of food and other necessary supplies and Residence Life Staff are regularly checking on them. The residence service desk is available to them by phone 24/7.
Those in isolation are being reminded that, under Public Health regulations intended to manage the spread of the virus, they are not allowed to leave these units except in the case of emergency or for the purpose of COVID testing. No guests are allowed in any of the residence units and students must not stand in doorways to converse with others. Incidents of students violating these COVID mitigation policies are being investigated under the student Code of Conduct.
This is a very challenging time. Brock understands an outbreak causes anxiety and stress. The University appreciates the co-operation of the entire campus community as together, we work to overcome these challenges.
Any students who are experiencing symptoms or have a medical concern are asked to contact Student Health Services immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org
Students in isolation are reminded they can contact their residence don or Residence Life staff for help. The service desk is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Further updates will be provided as they become available.
