COVID-19 Advisory

Parents/guardians and staff at Eamer’s Corners Public School received notification today that an individual at the school has tested positive for COVID-19. This is the third individual at the school that has tested positive for the virus.

The Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU) is working closely with the school and is actively communicating with all individuals who have been identified as possible close contacts through high-risk exposures. It is important to note that there was no high-risk exposure at the school. 

The school and health unit are taking all necessary steps to prevent the further spread of the virus both in the school and in the community.

No change to the school schedule or daily operations has been required.

The health unit encourages parents/guardians to continue to use the COVID-19 School Screening Tool prior to each school day, as well as regular public health recommendations to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Testing for COVID-19 is not recommended, unless you are experiencing symptoms or have been directed to get tested by public health. If symptoms develop, immediately self-isolate, contact the health unit at and get tested at a local assessment centre.

The health unit and the school board do not release details about a COVID-19 case in a school directly to the public. You can find more information about COVID-19 cases in our schools on COVID-19 Advisory Information page, or on the Government of Ontario website.

Schools report confirmed COVID-19 cases to the provincial government and it is tracked on the provincial website. It can take up to 24 to 48 hours for the information to be posted, based on the timing of reporting.
