EOHU COVID-19 Advisory

Parents/guardians, staff and students at Cornwall Collegiate and Vocational School (CCVS) received notification this evening that two individuals at the school have tested positive for COVID-19.

This is not an outbreak as these two cases are not linked. One of the cases was identified as no risk as the individual was not at the school during the time of communicability.

The Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU) is working closely with the school and is actively communicating with all individuals who have had a possible high-risk exposure. Both the health unit and the school are taking all necessary steps to prevent further spread of the virus in the school and community. 
 
The school remains open and operating on the regular daily schedule.
 
 
The health unit encourages everyone to continue to follow public health recommendations
to 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.
