You can find more information about the total number of COVID-19 cases in our schools in 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 an additional individual testing positive for COVD-19 at Rockland Public 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.

All 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 schools are not shared with the public or with media.
