COVID-19 Advisory

Parents/guardians, staff and students at Seaway District High School received notification today that an individual associated with the school has tested positive for COVID-19.  

The Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU) worked closely with the school and determined that there has been no exposures at the school. Both the school and health unit are taking all necessary steps to prevent the further spread of the virus in the school and in the community. 
The school remains open and operating on the regular daily schedule.   
The health unit encourages everyone to continue to follow public health recommendationsto reduce the spread of COVID-19 and monitor for symptoms carefully.  

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 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 our 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.
