A letter sent to the media from the UCDSB Sunday September 12th mentionned the following:
Parents/guardians, staff and students at the following schools received notification within the last 48 hours that at least one individual at their school has tested positive for COVID-19.
- Pleasant Corners Public School (Vankleek Hill) – OPEN
- St. Lawrence Secondary School (Cornwall) – OPEN
- South Edwardsburg Public School (Johnstown) – OPEN
- Vankleek Collegiate Institute (Vankleek Hill) – OPEN
- Viscount Alexander Public School (Cornwall) – CLOSED
The Eastern Ontario Health Unit and the Leeds, Grenville & Lanark Health Unit have done assessments to determine those within the schools who may have had a high-risk exposure, and are actively communicating with those people. St. Lawrence Secondary School, South Edwardsburg Public School, Vankleek Collegiate Institute and Pleasant Corners Public School remain open and operating on the regular daily schedule. Viscount Alexander Public School has been closed by the Eastern Ontario Health Unit until at least September 20 as a means to limit further exposures and spread within the school and community.
Both the health units and the schools are taking all necessary steps to prevent further spread of the virus in the schools and communities.
Specific details about a confirmed case of COVID-19 in a school are not directly communicated to the public or media. You can find more information about the number of COVID-19 cases in our schools on our online COVID-19 Info Centre.
