Today, Red River College received notification from Manitoba Public Health that a member of our community at Notre Dame Campus tested positive for COVID-19. The individual was asymptomatic while on campus.
Due to the safety measures and protocols in place at the College, Public Health advises the situation is considered low risk. Notre Dame Campus remains open and no other programs or services are impacted.
One classroom on campus has been closed for deep cleaning and disinfection. The individuals who were in the space at that time have been sent home out of an abundance of caution. Their situation is being assessed by Public Health, and we will follow their guidance for the return to campus.
We are working to support those affected. Members of our College community who have further questions, or who may have been contacted by Public Health as a result of their investigation, are asked to contact the Health Centre at 204-632-2238, and we will continue to support you.
I appreciate how concerning this is for everyone at the College. The safety and health of our College community is our first priority, which is why it is our protocol to keep you updated as we receive information from Public Health.
Updates, if required, will be provided via email and will be shared online at rrc.ca/coronavirus
