COVID-19 exposure reported at Brampton secondary school

Peel Public Health is investigating after a report of COVID-19 exposure at Louise Arbour Secondary School in Brampton.

An individual who was at the school on Sept. 10 tested positive for COVID-19, as stated in a letter sent to parents on Sunday.

“I know this is hard to hear at the start of the school year. Like you, I had hoped this would never happen in our school community,” said Sharron Kuhl, the principal of Louise Arbour Secondary School.

In the letter, Kuhl confirms that the individual contracted COVID is from the community and not the school.

The school was cleaned on Sept. 10 and 11 and an extra cleaning will take place on Sunday.

Classes will resume on Monday as regular, says Kuhl.

The province has input an online COVID-19 tracker for all schools and child care centres in Ontario to keep track of any possible further outbreaks.
