COVID-19 Cases In Toronto Schools Are Already Being Reported Across The City

COVID-19 cases in Toronto schools are being reported citywide this week with several ongoing investigations underway.

According to Toronto Public Health, cases have so far been confirmed in the following schools, Fraser Mustard, St-Michel French Catholic Elementary and West Hill Collegiate.

"We're carefully investigating and following our process of working w/our school community to notify those affected & ask them to stay home and monitor for signs & symptoms," TPH tweeted out on Sunday.

Health officials also noted that the wave of infection in school settings "isn't unexpected" due to the highly transmissible Delta variant's presence in the city.

On top of this, the Toronto District School Board has also announced that multiple other locations have reported cases among students and staff.

As of September 13, TDSB has listed 20 schools with active cases, with a total of 14 students and seven staff members testing positive for COVID-19.
