New Cases of COVID-19 in UCDSB Schools - Oct.5
New Cases of COVID-19 in UCDSB Schools - Oct.5
Posted on 10/05/2021

Parents/guardians, staff and students at the following schools received notification within the last 24-48 hours that at least one individual at their school has tested positive for COVID-19.   

  • Nationview Public School (South Mountain) - OPEN
  • North Dundas District High School (Chesterville) - OPEN
  • St. Lawrence Secondary School (Cornwall) - OPEN
  • Tagwi Secondary School (Avonmore) - OPEN

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

At North Dundas DHS, Tagwi SS and St. Lawrence SS, the health unit determined that the individuals were not at school while infectious and therefore there was no exposure within the schools from those cases.

All schools remain open and operating on their regular daily schedules.

The case that was reported on October 3 at Linklater Public School was reported incorrectly as a confirmed case. There have been no positive cases of COVID-19 at that school.

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 health unit and schools are taking all necessary steps to prevent further spread of the virus. Specific information about individuals and cases within our schools is not shared by the school board with the public or with the media.
