Seven schools fully closed due to COVID in Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon
Geographic boundaries are of no concern to COVID-19 as the virus continues to pummel Peel Region forcing the closure of seven schools across Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon.
All seven elementary schools are within the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board and the closures come either to stop the spread of the virus or because there are too many teachers isolating and not enough personnel to replace them.
Students at all the affected schools will switch to remote learning for the time being.
St. Sofia on Havenwood Dr. in Mississauga appears to be getting hit the hardest as 10 students and five teachers were infected with the virus which initially led to the closure of seven classrooms until the entire school was closed.
Other Mississauga schools closed are St. Bernard of Clairvaux on Escada Dr. and St. Valentine on Heatherleigh Ave.
Brampton has two schools currently shutdown, St. Alphonsa on Olivia Marie Rd. and St. Bonaventure on McCrimmon Dr.
In Caledon, St. John Paul II on Bolton Heights Rd. and St. John the Baptist on Landsbridge St.
The Catholic board has also closed 74 classrooms.
The Peel District School Board reports no school closures but 132 classrooms have been shut down.
