DAILY UPDATE: 83 COVID-19 cases being reported at public schools in Brampton and Mississauga

Published October 5, 2021 at 9:41 am

Nearly 20 fewer public schools in Mississauga and Brampton are reporting COVID-19 cases as of Monday (October 4) compared to the end of last week.

Positive cases of COVID-19 in the Peel District School Board are at 83, down from the 105 reported on Friday, and 60 classrooms are closed, a decrease of 29 from Friday.

Fifty-three of the 296 schools in the Region are reporting at least one active case, a decrease of 18 from Friday.

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 affected 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
