8 new COVID-19 cases in Hamilton schools, 30 closed classrooms in Catholic board

Each school board in Hamilton reported four new confirmed COVID-19 cases on Friday (Oct. 1), but the similarities end there.
All four new cases within the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board (HWCDSB) occurred within schools that have an outbreak, although that does not necessarily mean there is a link. None of the new cases within the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board (HWDSB) appear tied to an outbreak within that school.
The HWCDSB is listing 30 closed classrooms. St. John the Baptist Elementary School in the east end has two closed classrooms and two new cases.
There is one new confirmed case at St. Thomas More, a high school on the Mountain where seven cohorts are closed.
Another new case was reported in a student at St. Martin of Tours, an elementary school in Stoney Creek. But the student had not physically attended since Sept. 17, two weeks ago.
Two Stoney Creek elementary schools in the public board had a new case, with a teacher at Tapleytown and a pupil at Winona testing postive. The others were associated with a remote learning student at Ray Lewis Elementary School on the Mountain and a continuing education student who is attending the Hill Park Learning Centre.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
