The five individuals reportedly had a number of interactions at downtown bars and restaurants in London, Ontario, according to the Middlesex-London Health Unit.

“We know our students value the opportunity to be on campus and have some in-class experiences – and for this to continue to happen, everyone must play a role in keeping themselves and the community safe by following public health guidelines,” said Jennifer Massey, associate vice-president of the student experience.

The school has also set up a COVID-19 testing trailer in the parking lot of its Social Science Centre.
