Tracking and Testing

USask is cooperating with Sask Health Authority health authorities to facilitate contact tracing.

  • COVID-19 campus case tracking

    All campus community members confirmed positive are required to self-isolate until cleared by the SHA.

    To ensure the safety of the campus community, an area-specific response and cleaning plan will be completed. The SHA will complete the contact tracing process to identify and directly notify all individuals who may have been exposed to COVID-19. Anyone not contacted directly by SHA is not considered a close contact, and should simply continue to self-monitor for symptoms.
