Posted on 09/16/2021

Parents/guardians, staff and students at the following schools received notification within the last 24 hours that at least one individual at their school has tested positive for COVID-19.  

  • St. Lawrence Secondary School (Cornwall) – OPEN  
  • Viscount Alexander Public School (Cornwall) – OPEN 

You can find more information about the total number of COVID-19 cases in our schools on our online  COVID-19 Info Centre  or on the provincial website, which outlines all cases in all Ontario public schools.  

The  Eastern Ontario Health Unit  has done assessments to determine those within the schools who may have had a high-risk exposure, and are actively communicating with those individuals. 

With two additional individuals testing positive for COVD-19 at St. Lawrence Secondary School, the Eastern Ontario Health Unit has declared an outbreak. An outbreak is declared when two or more individuals have tested positive for COVID-19, at least one of which is linked to possible transmission at the school. 

Both schools remain open.  
 
The health unit and all schools are taking all necessary steps to prevent further spread of the virus in the schools and communities.

Specific information about individuals and cases within our school are not shared with the public or with  media.
