DAILY UPDATE: 50 COVID-19 cases reported at 38 public schools in Mississauga and Brampton

Published October 14, 2021 at 11:46 am

Seventeen fewer public schools in Mississauga and Brampton are reporting COVID-19 cases as of Wednesday (October 13).

Positive cases of COVID-19 in the Peel District School Board are at 50, down from 83 the day before, and 33 classrooms are closed, down from 63 the day before.

Thirty-eight of 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
