Posted on 09/17/2021

Parents/guardians, staff and students at the following schools received notification within the las24 hours that at least one individual at their school has tested positive for COVID-19.  

  • Maynard Public School (Maynard) - OPEN
  • Viscount Alexander Public School (Cornwall) - OPEN

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 and the Leeds, Grenville & Lanark District Health Unit  have 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 Maynard Public School, the Leeds, Grenville & Lanark District Health Unihas declared an outbreak, however there was no additional exposure within the school.  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 community. Specific information about individuals and cases within our school are not shared with the public or with media
