The University has identified a total of 28 cases in the Queen’s community since Aug. 31, including nine cases in residence and 19 off-campus. Kingston, Frontenac, and Lennox & Addington (KFL&A) Public Health is reporting 16 active cases in the region.

KFL&A Public Health raised the community status from green to yellow on Nov. 23 at the direction of the provincial government. The COVID-19 yellow community status indicates the region has “a few active positive cases, less than two active outbreaks, full local hospitality capacity, cases and contacts are being reached within 24 hours of notification of positive test results, and there is high testing capacity (community swabbing has increased).”
Yellow community status also means KFL&A Public Health now updates its COVID-19 case data dashboard every day of the week.

There has been a total of 245 positive cases in the KFL&A region since the outbreak of the pandemic.
The University said the yellow level requires heightened safety measures, which affect select activities on campus. However, the changes are expected to be minimal because Queen’s has been operating under stricter COVID-19 guidelines throughout the term.
