Reporting and Responding


Reporting Form

An online reporting tool is in place to assist the university in responding appropriately when a person who has been on campus has experienced COVID-19 like symptoms, has been confirmed as a positive case or is self-isolating as per the Chief Medical Officer’s orders. More information on using the form is on the Campus Operations page.

University Response to COVID-19 cases

MacEwan University continues to follow the recommendations of the Chief Medical Officer of Health (CMO) and Alberta Health Services (AHS) in developing guidelines and processes related to COVID-19.

Notifying individuals who may have been exposed

If a member of the campus community receives a positive COVID-19 diagnosis, MacEwan will work with AHS to facilitate contact tracing with any people that the affected individual was in close contact with. AHS will contact these individuals directly to advise them of next steps. MacEwan will not publicly disclose any information about individuals who test positive for COVID-19 in compliance with Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy legislation.

Notifying the campus community

MacEwan will not make public announcements about individual exposures or cases unless AHS determines there is risk to the community. The university and AHS will assess each situation to determine if there is a risk of exposure to any part of the campus community and, if so, specific individuals (e.g. employee group, students in a class) will be directly notified of any risks. If an outbreak of COVID-19 (two or more cases linked by location) occurs on campus, the university will work with AHS to issue a public notification.
