Reporting Cases on Campus
Ryerson’s Environmental Health and Safety team work closely with Toronto Public Health to ensure the university implements any Toronto Public Health directives as necessary to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Please note that the university only tracks, monitors and responds to cases if the individual has been on campus or participated in Ryerson-sanctioned off-campus events in the 14 days prior to testing positive or been identified as a high risk close contact (probable case).
If you have not been on campus or at a Ryerson-sanctioned event in the 14 days prior to testing positive or been identified as a high risk close contact (probable case), students should connect with course instructors, and employees should connect with their leaders to coordinate accommodation or time off as needed.
A confirmed case is a person with laboratory confirmation of COVID-19 infection based on a validated test approved by Health Canada performed at a hospital or community or reference laboratory.
A probable case is a person who may or may not have symptoms of COVID-19 but had high risk exposure (i.e. close contact) with a confirmed case of COVID-19 or has been identified as a high risk close contact due to living or working in a facility known to be experiencing an outbreak of COVID-19.
