Child at summer camp tests positive for COVID-19
Officials say a child who attends a city-run summer camp in Toronto has tested positive for COVID-19, prompting the program to shut down for a week.
City officials say the camper, who attended a program at the Barbara Frum Community Centre, was sent home with symptoms last week and has been self-isolating since then.
They say the city learned on Wednesday that the child had tested positive for the virus.
Officials say some children from the program returned to the community centre after the camper was sent home, while others attended another program at the Glen Long Community Centre.
Programs at both locations will be closed for the remainder of the week and are to reopen on Aug. 17 after a deep cleaning.
The city says none of the other campers or staff at either program have tested positive for COVID-19 or are exhibiting symptoms.
