Between March 8 and March 21, 80 cases have been identified at Queen’s University. The school’s COVID-19 tracker has yet to be updated Monday.
Most of the region’s most recent cases have come back positive for variants of concern, according to Dr. Kieran Moore, medical officer of health for the region.
In an interview Sunday, Moore urged residents to keep their social circles small while the variant is present in the community.
“The threat level in our communities never been so high, and we all need to really tighten down our social circles very quickly. We’re seeing it spread when people have small parties, small social events, sleepovers with their children, spreading back to parents,” Moore said.
