According to the data, Hawthorne Village Public School (850 Bennett Blvd.) and Irma Coulson Public School (625 Sauve St.) have outbreaks which have recently occurred and are still ongoing.

Both schools remain open.

Halton Public Health reports the outbreak at Hawthorne began on September 16 with two cases. There are three cases at Irma Coulson that were found on September 24.

Information provided by the Ontario government shows that all of the cases in the Milton schools involve students.

According to the Province, an outbreak at a school can be determined when:

  • Two or more students, staff or visitors with COVID-19covid 19 within 14 days
  • At least one of the infected people could have reasonably been infected in the school (for example, there was no obvious source outside the school or exposure at the school was obvious), including transportation to and from school and before-and after-school activities
