This dashboard outlines confirmed cases of COVID-19 that are connected to Fleming campuses. A few details to note:

  1. Fleming works closely with our Public Health partners in all instances where a positive case may impact our campus community.
  2. This dashboard reflects confirmed positive cases that have been reported to the College that have been on campus while considered infectious including cases that are deemed low risk to the campus community.
  3. Local Public Health authorities will directly contact any Fleming College individual who has been deemed to be at elevated risk for COVID-19 based on close contact. If you have not be contacted directly, you are not deemed to be at elevated risk..
  4. This page will be updated each Monday.

A confirmed case will be reported when;

  • A Fleming community member with a COVID-19 diagnosis was on Fleming property within the 48 hours prior to onset of symptoms
  • A Fleming community member with a COVID-19 diagnosis was on Fleming property within the 48 hours prior to the COVID-19 test date
  • A Fleming community member with a COVID-19 diagnosis was on Fleming property within the 10 days after the COVID-19 positive test date.
  • Fleming College has been instructed by the local or provincial public health authorities to notify Fleming community members of a case.

Definitions:

Confirmed: A confirmed case reflects those instances, reported to the College, where an individual has been on campus with an active infection. A person who has a confirmed, active case of COVID-19 is able to spread the virus to other people. All active cases of COVID-19 are required to be in self-isolation and are regularly being monitored by Public Health. A confirmed case will stay in this dashboard until it is deemed resolved.

Resolved: A person who had COVID-19 is considered to be resolved when they are no longer infectious (they can't spread the virus to others). People who have been infected with COVID-19 may still have symptoms or side effects of COVID-19 after they are considered resolved. Most people infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 will be considered resolved 10 days after their symptoms began. All cases will be monitored by Health and Safety, alongside local Public Health, to ensure safe campus re-entry.

Confirmed: 4
Resolved: 5
