Published November 3, 2021 at 1:58 pm
The number of reported COVID-19 cases among students and staff at Catholic schools in Mississauga and Brampton continues to decline, the latest data shows.
According to numbers from the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board, 14 schools (11 elementary, three secondary) are reporting ongoing cases of the virus as of today (Nov. 3).
In recent weeks and going back a couple of months, that number has been in the 20s and 30s.
Of schools reporting cases, St. Teresa Avila (Mississauga) and St. Jean Brebeuf (Brampton) elementary schools are currently experiencing active COVID-19 outbreaks, according to Peel Public Health officials.
An outbreak is defined as two or more lab-confirmed cases in students, staff or providers with an epidemiological link within a 14-day period where at least one case could have acquired infection in the school.
Collectively, Dufferin-Peel schools are reporting 32 active student cases (12 of those at St. Anthony Elementary in Brampton) and two active staff cases, in addition to 26 closed classrooms (five at St. Anthony).
A closed classroom means the children from that class are sent home to learn remotely during a quarantine period of at least 10 days.

- Christ the King: 2 students, 2 closed classrooms
