A student at Loughborough Public School has tested positive for COVID-19, and one class cohort and one bus cohort have been dismissed early, according to a release from the Limestone District School Board (LDSB).
The school remains open at this time and all affected members of the school community have been notified, LDSB said. Families are asked to carefully review this KFL&A Public Health Letter to the LPS School Community.
“KFL&A Public Health and the school are taking all necessary steps to prevent further spread of the virus both in the school and the community,” the school board said.
Cases in schools must be reported locally and provincially. In the interests of maintaining privacy, the board will not identify people that have received positive COVID-19 tests.
Visit the COVID-19 Confirmed Cases webpage for a list of current cases. This brings the total of current active cases in LDSB to eight. According to LDSB, cases are removed from the website once public health has deemed them resolved and the students can return to school.
