DAILY UPDATE: 75 COVID-19 cases being reported at 56 public schools in Mississauga and Brampton

Published October 6, 2021 at 12:01 pm

Five fewer public schools in Mississauga and Brampton are reporting COVID-19 cases as of Tuesday (October 5).

Positive cases of COVID-19 in the Peel District School Board are at 75, down from 83 the previous day, and 56 classrooms are closed, down from 60 the previous day.

Almost 20 per cent of Peel schools, 56 of 296, 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
