The Limestone District School Board has announced that a staff member of Centreville Public School tested positive for COVID-19 on March 30th. KFL&A Public Health is now directing all students and staff members to isolate pending further investigation.
“All students and staff who attended or worked at Centreville Public School on March 26, 29, or 30, 2021 must self-isolate until they hear otherwise,” said LDSB in a news release. “Public Health will send more messaging after additional investigation has been done,” they added.
The school has temporarily been closed and all in-person classes will now be switched to remote learning until further notice. LDSB says this is because Variants of Concerns (VOC) are now in the KFL&A region and spread easier. As of March 30th, the board has not confirmed that the positive case was a Variant of Concern.
“KFL&A Public Health is working with the school to identify cohorts of students and staff who may have been in close contact with the COVID-19 positive person at school or during school transportation, if applicable,” wrote LDSB in the news release.
Today, KFL&A Public Health is announced 9 new COVID-19 cases and 8 resolved cases. There are currently 70 active cases of COVID-19 in the KFL&A community.
