Ontario Government launches site detailing those schools affected by COVID

Site to be updated daily with new cases among schools or child care centres

Queen’s Park has launched a new website designed to keep parents better informed about the impacts of COVID on Ontario schools.

A new school-specific site was launched Friday, detailing the number of cases of COVID-19 within schools across the province. The site details the number of students or staff affected and at which school too. As of Friday morning, there were 13 cases, 9 staff, and 4 students, spread across schools in Ottawa, the GTA, and Peel Region.

None were in Simcoe County or the District of Muskoka.

The site also details licensed child care centres and agencies with active COVID-19 cases.

The province expects to update this new site daily, including weekends, at 10:30 every morning.
