The latest school to shutter its doors is Marc Garneau CI, who has reported 14 cases among students.

Fraser Mustard Early Learning Academy and Thorncliffe Park PS have also closed their doors due to high case numbers.

In fact, Thorncliffe Park has confirmed that a whopping 29 of its students have tested positive.

The list was last updated on Tuesday at 8:00 p.m. 

Toronto and Peel Region are currently both in full lockdown. However, schools remain open.

Last month, students were told to layer up this winter as windows would be kept open to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
