KFL&A Public Health has notified the Limestone District School Board of positive cases of COVID-19 at the following area schools for the week of Sept 21, 2021:

  • One staff member at Ernestown Secondary School on Sept. 23, 2021. Given the scope of potential high-risk contacts related to this case, the school will transition to virtual learning for the remainder of Sept. 23 and Sept. 24, 2021. School will reopen Sept. 27, 2021 to all students and staff with exception of the dismissed cohorts.

In cases where it has been determined that there is no risk to students or staff, cohorts are not required to isolate and the schools will remain open. 

Instances when a positive case in a school poses no risk to the school include:

  • The case(s) is learning or teaching virtually and has not been in the school.
  • The case(s) was already isolating and not attending school because they were previously identified as a close contact of a case.
  • The case(s) was not present at the school when they were infectious. 

KFL&A Public Health works closely with schools to ensure that necessary steps are taken to prevent further spread of the virus both in the school and the community.

All families should continue to monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 and screen students daily as most cases of COVID-19 are acquired in the home setting.

Cases in schools must be reported locally and provincially. We are sharing this information with you to ensure you have accurate information. No further information will be released to maintain privacy.

Please visit the COVID-19 Confirmed Cases webpage for a list of current cases.
