Two COVID-19 cases at Dalhousie University (Nov 22)

This weekend, Nova Scotia Public Health has informed Dalhousie University of two confirmed COVID-19 cases among our student community living off-campus in Halifax.

When a new case of COVID-19 is confirmed, Nova Scotia Public Health (NSPH) works to identify and test people who may have come in close contact with that person. NSPH contacts individuals that may be affected through contact tracing and will provide further instruction to those individuals. Where there is potential community exposure, NSPH also issues exposure notifications. NSPH has not identified any campus locations for an exposure notification at this time.

Staff from our Student Health and Wellness teams in both Halifax and Truro are always available to support our students, at 902-494-2171 (Halifax) and 902-893-6369 (Truro), should they have any health concerns. Employees looking for any support are encouraged to speak with their manager/supervisor or connect with supports available through our Employee Family Assistance Program, which can be accessed at or at or through your Blue Cross employee benefits. 

Respecting both privacy and public health matters, this is as much information as we can share.  

Stay safe – follow public health guidelines

Greater Halifax is seeing an increase in COVID-19 cases and Public Health has stated that the current increase in cases is being driven by socializing among 18-35-year-olds. Our student community is at increased risk of contracting and spreading COVID-19 right now.

The best way to keep you, your family, your friends and your community safe is to follow public health guidelines. We all have a responsibility to do our part to prevent COVID-19’s spread.
