Today, the Windsor Essex County Health Unit (WECHU) declared an outbreak in one program affecting two different semesters at St. Clair College at the South Windsor Campus.
This outbreak has been linked to an exposure in two cohorts.
The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit declares a school outbreak when there are two or more cases in a school that are linked and if there is evidence that at least one case could have been infected in that same class.
Students and staff impacted have been notified and directed to either self-monitor or self-isolate.
The College is working closely with WECHU to manage the outbreak in this specific program and any other cases that have been identified.
St. Clair College has a Vaccination Policy where students must be fully vaccinated or conduct rapid testing every 72 hours. In addition, the College mandates daily questionnaires for staff and students for entry into the College. There are daily screenings at every entrance of the College.
As of today, St. Clair College staff and students are:
- 80.5% fully vaccinated.
- 12.9% at least one dose of vaccine.
- 6.6% have chosen not to vaccinate or disclose their status to the College.
