A student at McMaster University has tested positive for COVID-19, marking the school’s seventh case of the virus.
In a release Monday — the same day the university was notified of the case — McMaster said the student tested positive on Oct. 18.
They were last on campus on Oct. 15 and spent time “in several areas” of the Michael G. DeGroote Centre for Learning and Discovery.
“All areas of the building, as well as all applicable lab equipment, have since been thoroughly cleaned,” stated the release.
“When the university is notified that someone is awaiting test results and has been on campus, the areas where the person had been on campus in the past 72 hours are cleaned out of an abundance of caution,” the release added.
