Self-Reported Positive Covid-19 Result
On October 27th, our school was informed of two self-reported positive COVID-19 test result or results. The individual or individuals may have interacted with:
Mr. Cole – Grade 4 – Portable 1
Ms. Katz – Grade 6 – Room 127
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 are encouraged to follow guidance from the Provincial COVID-19 School Screening Tool or their health care provider.
If your child is sick, please have them stay home.
