McMaster University issued a notice Monday (Mar. 22) that there have been two new confirmed COVID-19 cases on campus.

The cases, which are unrelated, involve two international students who tested positive on Mar. 18 and “who had already been quarantining in residence in accordance with government guidelines after arriving earlier in March,” according to a spokesperson.

“All impacted areas have since been thoroughly cleaned.”

The university says contact tracing is being managed by public health.

“They will be directly contacting anyone who would be part of the tracing for these cases.”

McMaster says it has developed comprehensive protocols for any reported confirmed case of COVID-19 in accordance with public health guidelines and includes the creation of a rapid response team that coordinates all cleaning.
