COVID-19 Exposure: Nov: 2020

Saint Mary’s will continue to work with Public Health to keep our community safe.

The university has been notified by Public Health of a potential public exposure to COVID-19 at the Dauphinee Centre between November 18th and November 22nd.  Public Health has advised that symptoms related to this potential exposure could develop up to, and including, Dec. 6.

Anyone who visited the centre during this time should visit covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/ to book a COVID-19 test, regardless of whether or not they have COVID-19 symptoms. People who book testing because they were at a site of potential exposure to COVID-19 are required to self-isolate before their test and while waiting for test results. You can also call 811 if you don’t have online access or if you have other symptoms that concern you. Do not go directly to a COVID-19 assessment centre without being directed to do so.

In their announcement, Public Health noted that a public notification it is not in any way a reflection on the behaviour or activities of those named in the notification. They are advising everyone in Nova Scotia to continue monitoring for COVID-19 symptoms and to follow Public Health guidelines on how to access care. Up to date information about COVID-19 is available at novascotia.ca/coronavirus. To see the exposure update that includes the Dauphinee Centre directly from Public Health, click here.

Saint Mary’s will continue to work with Public Health to keep our community safe.
