Confirmed COVID-19 cases on campus

Transparency is a key part of our efforts to keep the George Brown College community healthy and safe and we’re providing up-to-date information on positive cases of COVID-19 reported at our campuses.

Strict protocols are in place for students and employees who have been approved to come to campus to complete required in-person and hands-on labs and experiences. These include:

  • mandatory masks
  • mandatory COVID-19 awareness training
  • mandatory COVID-19 health screening
  • enhanced cleaning and signage, and
  • gathering limits in classrooms, labs, elevators and common areas.

We will update the information on this page as soon as we receive confirmation of new cases on campus.

Cases at child-care centres and school boards are made public at ontario.ca/page/covid-19-cases-schools-and-child-care-centres.

Waterfront Campus, Daphne Cockwell Centre for Health Sciences, 51 Dockside Dr., rooms 004 and 005, and the concourse washroom.
In this case, a student who had close contact with the individual on campus also tested positive.  They had been self-isolating at home and were not on campus while infectious. All students in the program were learning online since the original case was identified on March 29. We believe it is the first instance of transmission on campus.

*On Jan. 22, 2021, we reported four positive cases at Casa Loma Campus in our Confirmed Cases on Campus table above. Because the students were not infectious when they were last on campus (Jan.13) these cases have been removed from our count.
