A Laurentian University student has tested positive for COVID-19, the university reports on its website.

The university was informed of the positive test Sept. 10, said a message from Laurentian president Robert Haché posted to LU’s website Monday.

Public Health Sudbury and Districts is currently conducting contact tracing.

“PHSD has classified the case as low risk and also confirmed that the student had limited interaction with individuals outside of their cohort,” said Haché’s message.

“This week’s return to campus has been successfully implemented thanks to the dedication of our entire community. We have no reason to believe this positive test will result in an outbreak, but we need to remain extremely vigilant.”
