One Ontario high school is shutting down after around one-third of the students were reportedly potentially exposed to COVID-19.
The move comes after two students tested positive for COVID-19. The London Free Press now reports that multiple other students have potentially been exposed.

In a letter that was sent to Narcity, the school states that closing down is just an abundance of caution to help protect students and their families.
"As we are deeply committed to the health and safety of our students and our wider school community, when we became aware of the situation we acted on our Covid-19 protocols and worked with the MLHU to determine next steps," read the statement.
Families who were affected by the disease have already been contacted by the school.
Classes are expected to return back to in-person learning on January 4.
According to the London Free Press, this is the first school in the area to actually be shut down due to the disease.
