COVID-19 Case Tracker

If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or have received a positive test, report your symptoms or diagnosis here.

Updated October 19, 2021

This page will be updated every Tuesday with the current status of confirmed COVID-19 cases (positive test) reported to McGill. The numbers consist only of McGill students and employees who were present on our campuses during their contagion period. The contagion period, as defined by public health guidelines, is the 48 hours before the person diagnosed with COVID-19 develops symptoms, or, if the person has no symptoms, the 48 hours before the person took the COVID-19 test.

These numbers reflect the confirmed COVID cases that are reported to McGill. The University collaborates with the Direction régionale de la santé publique (DRSP) and initiates strict protocols, which may include the isolation of other individuals, and will immediately suspend or close study or work areas and buildings as necessary. Moreover, should there be a confirmed COVID case on campus, the University will adhere to a strict privacy policy that calls for the identities of individuals to be kept confidential.

Possible transmission on campus is defined as two or more confirmed cases that occur in the same area/class/group over a 14-day period when these cases are not explainable by another epidemiological origin.
