There are two COVID-19 outbreaks to tell you about.

Western University has declared an outbreak at one of their student residences.

Four students at London Hall residence have tested positive for the virus. The university says they are in isolation at another location.

"Out of an abundance of caution", the university says, the infected students' close contacts have been moved to a quarantine location.

"We are delivering them meals, and our staff are in regular contact to ensure students are well supported," the university said.

Critics say the warning comes too late as many students have already travelled home for Thanksgiving.

This is not the first outbreak amongst the student population at Western University, since classes resumed in September.

Two COVID-19 outbreaks were declared among students off-campus last month.
