DAILY UPDATE: COVID-19 case counts top 100 at Mississauga, Brampton schools on Oct. 1

Six new public schools in Mississauga and Brampton are reporting COVID-19 cases today, Oct. 1.

For the first time, there are more than 100 active cases among staff and students at Peel District School Board facilities.

Positive cases of COVID-19 in the Peel District School Board are at 105, up from 96 yesterday, and 89 classrooms are closed, up seven from yesterday.

Almost a quarter of Peel schools, 71 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
