Another Peel school confirms positive coronavirus case

Another Peel school confirms positive coronavirus case

Ten positive cases of COVID-19 were reported in schools across the GTA on Monday, as some students headed back for their first day of in-person classes.

The district's weekly count can be found on the school safety page of its website under "Weekly COVID-19 Case Counts".

But instead, the Sudbury Board of Health is requiring all high school students to undergo full remote learning for 14 days from the night of the gathering. Three upperclassman from the high school tested positive last week.

Superintendent David Foley said before the vote that he really didn't have a recommendation regarding whether the board members should vote to approve a full-time return to school. "We are so excited to bring our students back". Masks are required, social distancing enforced and many schools are having students eat in classrooms rather than cafeterias. Anyone experiencing symptoms is asked to call 811 and stay home until they can get a negative COVID-19 test.

The district is switching to virtual instruction for two weeks after a student tested positive for the coronavirus, officials said.

It's not known if that person is a student or an employee.

The database is being used to track COVID-19 in schools and shows overall five additional cases in the Peel and Halton region have also been reported. Should I send them to school?

The letter stated that administrators were advised by the local health department there is "little functional difference" between MERV 2 and MERV 8 filters when it comes to the COVID-19 virus and moved from a hyrid scheduled "out of an abundance of caution".

Clemens also wrote that the school was informed Monday to submit information to the state's COVID Report Card site by 5 p.m.

Parents have until September 30 to make a decision: Send their children back to campus or commit to virtual learning for the rest of the semester, Herrin said.

All school sports will continue as planned, and students enrolled at Central Pennsylvania Institute of Science and Technology will continue to attend classes.

"Our goal is to do what is best for students while providing measures that will keep students, staff and their families as safe as possible", said Carl.

The Erie County Health Department tells 7 Eyewitness News it will work with any school to help them "fulfill their state reporting requirements".
