28 students at Western University test positive for COVID, school moves back to phase 3
Western University in London, ON is shutting down many activities after 28 students test positive for COVID-19.
While most of the students live off campus, one student is in residence and now in isolation.
The cases are prompting the school to stop many non-academic activities on campus.
The university will move back to Western Phase Three in its return-to-campus plan, which includes suspending athletics and recreation as well as in-person student club meetings and events, which will go back to virtual mode for now, and restricting access to libraries and several other buildings, effective immediately.
On-campus classes will continue; approximately 25 per cent of courses have an in-person component. Residences remain open.
“These numbers are very concerning,” said Western President Alan Shepard, noting the university is working closely with the Middlesex-London Health Unit (MLHU) to isolate and prevent further spread of the virus. “Creating community is one of Western’s strengths, and we know our students desperately want to have some on-campus experiences. But, unfortunately, this development means we will be limiting those experiences.”
