A school in the Niagara Catholic District School Board (NCDSB) has officially been declared to have a COVID-19 outbreak by Niagara Health.
Notre Dame Catholic Elementary School reported four active cases and outbreaks are called when it’s believed one case has lead to more within the school due to proximity.
While many school in both the NCDSB and District School Board of Niagara (DSBN) have ongoing COVID-19 cases being reported, often times it’s impossible to tell if an infected student brought it in from outside the school.
On the other side of the coin, the NCDSB only has six cases in total compared to seven for the DSBN.
Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School has one case with one closed classroom, Notre Dame has those four cases with one closed classroom and Saint Francis Catholic Secondary School has one case with no closed classrooms.
Over at the DSBN, it’s a little more spread out. DSBN Academy has one case with one closed classroom, the Education Centre has one case (no closed classrooms as it’s the DSBN headquarters), Grapeview has two cases with two closed classrooms, Kate S Durdan has two cases with one closed classroom and Lincoln Centennial has one case with one closed classroom.
As recently as last week, the DSBN show just two schools affected. No school in either school board has shut down this year due to COVID-19.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
