COVID-19 - University and College
COVID-19 Variants of Concern are spreading in London and Middlesex County. We must double-down on our efforts to fight COVID-19. Don’t gather indoors, avoid all non-essential travel, and limit close contact to only those in your apartment, household, suite or dorm room. Thanks for continuing to do your part.
Take care of yourself
The return to school can be stressful, and the pandemic makes it even more stressful. If you're struggling, reach out to the health and wellness services at your university or college, or connect with the Canadian Mental Health Association.
- If you have symptoms, get tested. Symptoms include: fever, cough, difficulty breathing, sore throat, runny nose, etc.). See the full list →
- If you’ve been contacted by the Middlesex-London Health Unit or public health, get tested.
- Otherwise, don’t get tested. Monitor yourself very closely for symptoms and do your part to prevent spread.
- If you’ve tested negative recently - so what! You can still get it. Whether you are at home or out and about, your close contacts should only be those in your household. For everybody else, maintain two metres physical distance and wear a mask, no matter where you are or what you are doing.
