Two presumptive cases of COVID-19 at Quest University

Quest University has two presumptive cases of COVID-19 on campus.

Spokesperson Jasmine Aimaq said the cases are classified as presumptive because testing efforts are primarily focused on those who need hospitalization or healthcare workers.

Presumptive cases are advised by medical professionals to self-isolate.

“We have a few students who are self-isolating as a result of recent travel or other factors that warrant some extra precautions,” she wrote to The Chief.

The school currently has 80 students who are approved to stay on campus due to extenuating circumstances.

Quest announced it would shut its doors and moved to online classes on March 12, the day provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry ordered gatherings of 250 or more to be cancelled.

More stringent measures have been ordered since then.

Students were asked to leave their residences by midnight, March 20.
