In a letter on Saturday, Queen’s University Residence Life confirmed that 3 students living in its Victoria Hall residence tested positive for COVID-19. The affected students are currently isolating at Smith House.
The new cases come as students prepare to move out of residence this weekend. “Even at this late stage, it’s still critical that if you have symptoms, you be tested. Asymptomatic testing appointments also continue to be available,” said Residence Life in a statement to students.
Queen’s Residences have also arranged for the on-site testing of two impacted households later today. Earlier this week, Queen’s confirmed that two students from Chown Hall had also tested positive for the virus. 2 off-campus students tested positive for COVID-19 this week.
There are at least 77 active COVID-19 cases in the Queen’s community.
Appointments can be booked by contacting Student Wellness Services at 613-533-2506 or through their online booking form. Over the weekend, students are able to book an appointment at the Kingston Assessment Centre.
In addition, Queen’s Residences has the following move out reminders for students:
- You may have up to two people assist you with moving out.
