The number of Catholic schools in Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon reporting COVID-19 cases has increased slightly from yesterday.

The latest numbers from the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board, updated today, show that 58 schools (45 elementary, 13 secondary) are reporting ongoing cases of the virus among staff and students. That’s up from 53 schools reporting cases yesterday.

Dufferin-Peel schools are reporting 73 active student cases and 22 active staff cases of the virus, in addition to 116 closed classrooms. That last figure is up from 99 closed classrooms reported yesterday.

A closed classroom means the children from that class are sent home to learn remotely during a quarantine period of at least 10 days.

The overall numbers represent a dramatic increase from earlier in the fall when the number of schools reporting cases had dropped to below 20.

Meanwhile, Peel Public Health said an outbreak of the virus at St. Agnes Elementary School in Brampton was declared on Thursday, bringing the number of schools with outbreaks in Peel, at both school boards, to at least 16.
