While no schools either in the District School Board of Niagara (DSBN) or the Niagara Catholic District School Board (NCDSB) have been shut down due to COVID-19 cases, some 15 classrooms between the two boards have locked their doors for that very reason.
After just one week back, the DSBN has closed eight classrooms after seven discovered cases while the NCDSB with seven cases has shut seven classrooms.
The DSBN has closed five classrooms at Oakridge and one each at Jacob Beam, Ontario and Prince of Wales in Thorold.
The NCDSB has closed one classroom at each of the following elementary schools: Our Lady of Fatima, St Andrews, St Charles, St John, St John Bosco, St Peter and St Theresa.
While neither board will acknowledge whether it’s students, teachers or staff that contracted the cases, the fact that only classrooms have been closed would indicate students.
