Testing

Know when to get tested

Use the online self-assessment tool to determine whether you should be tested.


If you have any concerns about your health or possible exposure to COVID-19 call the Healthline at 811.

If you are sick, it is imperative that you stay home and do not spread your illness. Even if it is not COVID-19, please stay home and monitor your symptoms. It is mandatory that you should be symptom-free for 48 hours prior to returning to campus/work.

Reporting - confirmed or suspected cases

Self-reporting

Immediately notify the university if you have a confirmed case of COVID-19 or if you suspect you have COVID-19 as well if you have come in close contact of a positive or suspect case. 

This will allow USask to take the appropriate actions to safeguard our community as well as provide you with available resources or support.

Students: notify your instructor/supervisor and email: wellness@usask.ca
Faculty and staff: let your supervisor know

If you have been reported to

Supervisors/leaders/instructors please following the reporting response guidelines.

Tracking

USask is cooperating with Sask Health Authority health authorities to facilitate contact tracing.

COVID-19 campus case tracking

All campus community members confirmed positive are required to self-isolate until cleared by the SHA.

To ensure the safety of the campus community, an area-specific response and cleaning plan will be completed by the Crisis Operations Team prior to re-opening (if individuals with a positive case had been on campus recently), and the SHA will complete the contact tracing process to identify and directly notify all individuals who may have been exposed to COVID-19. Anyone not contacted directly by SHA is not considered a close contact, and should simply continue to self-monitor for symptoms. 

USask will provide ongoing updates on confirmed positive COVID-19 case numbers associated with the campus community, based on information provided to the university. Due to privacy considerations, only top-line case numbers will be announced on a weekly basis in this update.
