UWindsor implements “modified quarantine” after wastewater tests positive for COVID-19

March 30, 2021
The University of Windsor has implemented a “modified quarantine” in its Alumni Hall residence after a sample of wastewater tested positive for COVID-19. CBC reports that UWindsor does daily wastewater tests for COVID-19 on campus, and that this is the first time in two months that the wastewater has tested positive. The health unit will be providing testing to Alumni Hall students, with Student Health Services providing additional support. CBC says UWindsor’s wastewater testing gives them the opportunity to identify who has the COVID-19 infection before they spread it throughout the residence. CBC (ON)
