Two Mississauga Catholic schools that previously had no cases of COVID-19 are now reporting several student cases and classroom closures.
St. Paul Secondary School, located on Atwater Ave. in the southeast part of the city, is reporting two student cases and four classroom closures.
Meanwhile, St. Thomas More Elementary School, on Tomken Rd. in the east end, is reporting two student cases and two closed classrooms.
A closed classroom means the children from that class are sent home to learn remotely during a quarantine period of at least 10 days.
Overall, the latest numbers from the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board haven’t changed dramatically. They show 26 schools (18 elementary, eight secondary) are reporting ongoing cases of the virus as of today (Oct. 15).
Two days ago, 29 schools were reporting cases.
Furthermore, Dufferin-Peel schools are reporting 44 active student cases (compared to 38 two days ago) and four active staff cases (no change), in addition to 45 closed classrooms (41 two days ago).
Also, there is one confirmed case at the Board’s head offices on Matheson Blvd.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
