Two students from Bath Public School have tested positive for COVID-19, the Limestone District School Board has disclosed. However, the board says that it won’t have an impact on school operations.
“It has been determined that this case poses no risk to students or staff. As such, no cohorts will be required to isolate at this time and the school will remain open,” LDSB wrote in a letter to parents.
A student who poses no risk to the school are instances where:
• The case is learning or teaching virtually and has not been in the school.
• The case was already isolating and not attending school because they were previously identified
as a close contact of a case.
• The case was not present at the school when they were infectious.
“Families should continue to monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 and screen students daily as most cases of COVID-19 are acquired in the home setting,” the board added.
On September 21st, the LDSB also reported that a student at Loyalist Collegiate & Vocational Institute (LCVI) has tested positive for COVID-19. In this instance, no cohorts were impacted.
