A Hamilton private school has been charged under the Reopening Ontario Act (ROA) after allowing students inside the building during Ontario's stay-at-home order.
Michelle Shantz, senior communications officer at the City of Hamilton, told Narcity that bylaw officers had received several complaints about Tapply Binet College before investigating.
"Licensing received two complaints about the school: first complaint received on April 21, and the second on May 3. Officers investigated and observed students in the building," Shantz said.
"The location did not have a school direction or approval from the Minister of Health to be open – no documents provided. Therefore two ROA charges were issued," she added.
However, Sue Davidson, the school's principal, told CBC that they are allowed to stay open and are operating for the benefit of the students. According to Davidson, there were 10 students in the school and all of them were wearing masks.
Paul Johnson, the city's Emergency Operations Centre director, revealed during a COVID-19 update on Monday that bylaw officers have launched an investigation into the gym. However, no charges have been laid yet.
At the moment, fitness centres have been opening during the stay-at-home order to support individuals with medical needs for physiotherapy. However, it is still unclear exactly why this gym was open.
"I want to be clear, there have been no charges laid at Freshfhiit, it is an ongoing investigation," Johnson stated. He said that if the gym is, in fact, open for medical needs, the city would "fully support people being able to do their physiotherapy. But not so, if this is a way of people being able to access the gym during the stay-at-home order."
"These cases are spread across 17 different units on 10 separate floors. We appreciate how concerning this is for the residents of this building and the impact COVID-19 is having on their tight-knit community," reads a statement.
Cases have been reported in this building since March and public health is currently ensuring that tighter safety measures are put in place, including designated cleaners.
On May 6, Hamilton Paramedic Services will be on scene to provide COVID-19 testing to all residents.
