COVID cases

Information on cases identified within the Dal community

As Public Health informs Dalhousie University of cases related to our university community, that information will be shared here. In cases with a significant campus impact, direct communication will be shared with faculty, staff and students by email and on our Updates page.

When a new case of COVID-19 is confirmed, Nova Scotia Public Health works to identify and test people who may have come in close contact with that person. If you have not been contacted by Public Health you are not deemed to have been at risk. Where there is potential community exposure, Public Health also issues exposure notifications

This page contains information on cases identified after January 1, 2021.
