COVID-19 Cases Dashboard

Posted: Aug 18, 2020 4:10 PM   |  Updated: Mar 1, 2021 8:32 AM

As COVID-19 continues to circulate in our community, members of our community will test positive. The health and safety of the NAIT community are our top priorities as we continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, we are committed to providing timely and accurate information about cases on our campuses.

Anyone who may have been in close contact with an individual who tests positive for COVID-19 will be contacted directly, and will be advised to conduct the AHS self-assessment and book a COVID-19 test. Close contacts are legally required to quarantine for 14 days. We are monitoring active cases. 

We have put in place enhanced measures to keep our community safe. To keep the risk of transmission on our campuses low, everyone is reminded of their responsibility to prevent the spread of COVID-19, both on and off campus. This includes

Before coming to campus, follow the Coming to Campus checklist and complete the AHS COVID-19 Self-Assessment and the daily check-in form. 

The COVID-19 cases dashboard is updated weekly, by Tuesday, except on holidays (in which case, an update will occur on the next business day). Updates will include all cases reported to NAIT the previous week (Monday to Sunday). If we see a rapid rise in the number of cases impacting our community, we will revisit the frequency of these updates.
