Wits acts to manage Covid-19 exposure

- Wits University

Wits acts swiftly to manage student who came in contact with COVID-19 carrier.

The Wits COVID-19 management committee would like to advise the Wits community that a medical student has been quarantined after it was found that the student came into contact with a person who had been identified with COVID-19.

The student is being monitored closely and has not displayed any symptoms of COVID-19. The student has been screened and the test results are expected later today. However, as a precautionary measure the Faculty has cancelled the clinical activities scheduled for the student’s class today. All other activities continue as scheduled.

Further information will be made available when it becomes available.
