St. Lawrence College (SLC) was informed that a student on the Cornwall campus tested positive for COVID-19. 

Following established protocols, SLC is working closely with the Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU) in Cornwall, who has initiated contact tracing. Individuals who have been in close contact with the affected person and are deemed at risk will be notified by EOHU directly.

The student is isolating at home. The student was last on the Cornwall campus on Wednesday, September 23. SLC has performed extensive cleaning to ensure any affected areas on campus are sanitized and safe for students.

“The College will offer support to our student who has tested positive for COVID-19, as well as any other students who the EOHU determine may be impacted or at risk,” said Glenn Vollebregt, President and CEO at St. Lawrence College. “Our priority continues to be the health and safety of our campus community and the communities we serve. I urge anyone who feels ill to stay home and not come to campus.”

The Medical Officer of Health and CEO of the EOHU, Dr. Paul Roumeliotis says, “The Eastern Ontario Health Unit is satisfied with all of the precautions taken by St. Lawrence College. We are working closely with the college to identify and contact individuals who may have had high risk exposure with the case to provide direction, support, and follow up."
