Self-Reported Covid-19 Positive Test Result Notice
On April 25, our school was informed of a self-reported positive COVID-19 test result or results. The individual or individuals may have interacted with:
- Mr. Willett’s 3A class (Room 17)
- Mr. Whitehorn’s 3B class (Room 16)
This information is self-reported and has not been confirmed by Hamilton Public Health Services (HPHS). We are uncertain of the infectious period. To protect the privacy of any individual with a positive COVID-19 test result, we do not disclose their name.
Self-reporting positive COVID-19 test results is voluntary for those who choose to report, although should be encouraged.
Under updated Ministry of Health guidance, HPHS will no longer be using cohort-based dismissals for positive cases. Students and staff in a school setting are generally no longer considered high-risk contacts requiring isolation. Students and staff who do not have symptoms, have not been advised to isolate, and who pass the COVID-19 School and Child Care Screening may continue to go to school.
