A student at Brant Hills Public School in Burlington has tested positive for COVID-19.

The Halton District School Board has confirmed the case in a letter sent to parents yesterday.

“There is an exposure risk related to this case and a small cohort of high risk close contacts has been identified by Halton Region Public Health,” wrote Principal Drew Donaldson. “This group has already been notified by Halton Region Public Health to self-isolate at home and not attend school.”

The letter indicated the school has since been disinfected. Learning is expected to continue at the school and for those who are now self-isolating.

Located at 233 Duncaster Dr., the Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8 school has an enrolment of 315 students.

The board also reports an Oakville high school has a new reported case of COVID.

Garth Webb Secondary School at 2820 Westoak Trails Blvd, is the location but it has not been confirmed if the case involves a student or staff member.

These new cases bring to four the number of COVID-19 incidents reported in Halton schools since the beginning of the month.

Last week St. Marguerite d’Youville Catholic Elementary School on 1359 Bayshire Dr. and Oodenawi Public School, both in Oakville, reported cases involving staff members.
