There are 19 active COVID-19 cases in Halton public schools being reported as of the end of Oct. 4.
That’s down five from Monday. As older cases get resolved, schools are removed from the Halton District School Board reporting portal.
Of the 19 cases, 17 are in students and two are staff. They are spread across 11 of the board’s 106 schools.
The board continues to report zero closed classrooms.
A classroom is considered closed when the teacher and students have to spend at least 10 days quarantining at home and learning online.
“We do have some schools that have outbreaks in classrooms, but we don’t have any classes that are considered completely ‘closed’,” said a board spokesperson.
Here’s a list of schools currently reporting at least one COVID-19 case:
- Abbey Lane: 2 students
- Alton Village: 2 students
- Bruce Trail: 1 student
- Glenview: 1 student
- Irma Coulson: 4 students
- James W. Hill: 1 student
- Pilgrim Wood: 1 student
- WH Morden: 2 students
- West Oak: 1 student
- Craig Kielburger: 1 student
