COVID-19 Cases and Outbreaks in Schools

Parents, students and staff have an understandable interest in knowing when a COVID-19 positive case has been identified in their school. Any confirmed cases of COVID-19 within the Eastern Ontario Health Unit region that involve a student or a staff member in a school setting will be posted below. Notice of any outbreaks and subsequent closures of classes, cohorts or schools will also be posted below.

Note: In the interest of privacy, information will not identify any student or staff member that has received a positive COVID-19 test.

The Ministry of Education of Ontario also has a page about coronavirus (COVID-19) cases in Ontario schools.

Definitions

A confirmed case in a school is defined as a student and/or staff in a school with laboratory confirmation of COVID-19.

An outbreak in a school is defined as two or more lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases in students and/or staff in a school with an epidemiological link, within a 14-day period, where at least one case could have reasonably acquired their infection in the school (including transportation and before or after school care).

Management of COVID-19 in Schools

In the event of a confirmed case in a school, the Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU) will work with the school to determine epidemiological links (e.g., individuals in the same class, or that are part of the same before/after school care cohort, or that have assigned bus seats in close proximity to each other). The EOHU will determine which cohorts are high risk contacts requiring isolation. If the EOHU advises that a class, cohort or a school should be closed for a period of time, parents, students and staff will be notified immediately. (See the letter for parents on how public health and schools will manage any possible cases of COVID-19 at school.)
