U of A Rapid Response

This webpage supports the U of A’s comprehensive COVID-19 Rapid Response Plan, which mitigates against the spread of COVID-19 on our campuses in the event of an exposure or outbreak.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19 AND have been on campus in the last 10 days, please contact the Triage Team (students) or your supervisor (employees) as soon as possible. See procedures for sick employees or students.

The University of Alberta has more than 40,000 students and 15,000 employees who are currently residing across Canada and in many countries around the world. It is not possible for the institution to track or total the number of our community members who have been affected by COVID-19.
