U of A Rapid Response

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

If you have been required to isolate by the COVID-19 assessment for Albertans or have received a positive PCR or Rapid Antigen test result AND have been on campus in the last 10 days, please follow the procedure 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.
