DAILY UPDATE: 49 COVID-19 cases being reported at 37 public schools in Mississauga and Brampton

Published October 15, 2021 at 12:28 pm

Thirty-seven public schools in Mississauga and Brampton are reporting COVID-19 cases as of Friday (October 15).

Positive cases of COVID-19 in the Peel District School Board are at 49, and 38 classrooms are closed.

Based on the latest available data, 12.5 per cent of the 296 public schools in the Region are reporting at least one active case.

When a classroom is closed, all the students from that class are sent home and must attend school virtually for a 10-day quarantine period.

The Peel board is choosing to report zero classrooms closed in any of its secondary schools. According to the board, once any student from an effected class returns to school, the entire class is considered “not closed.” Because most secondary students are vaccinated, their quarantine period can be much shorter. Therefore, it’s extremely unlikely Peel will report secondary school classrooms closed, regardless of how many students are not in school
