School boards report 15 active COVID cases in region's schools

There are no new cases in Orillia area schools today

According to area school boards, there were 15 active COVID cases in schools in Simcoe County as of Sept. 13.

Simcoe County District School Board reported five cases as of yesterday and has not updated the list today. 

There is one case at Admiral Collingwood Elementary School, one at Alliston Union Public School, one at East Oro Public School, one at Collingwood Collegiate Institute and one at Nottawasaga Pines Secondary School. 

There is a classroom closed at Alliston Union Public School. 

Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board has reported eight active cases associated with schools in Barrie, Innisfil and Bradford.

There are three cases and three classrooms closed at Barrie's Saint Gabriel the Archangel Catholic School, and two cases and two classrooms closed at St. Nicholas Catholic School.

There are two cases and two classrooms closed at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School in Innisfil. 

There is one case and one classroom closed at St. Marie of the Incarnation Catholic School in Bradford. 

The French public school board, Conseil scolaire Viamonde, reported one student case in the region at Roméo-Dallaire High School in Barrie.

The French Catholic board, Mon Avenir Conseil Scolaire Catholicque, reported one staff case at ÉÉC Marguerite-Bourgeois, which is located in Borden.  

School boards are required to post regular, public updates on COVID cases linked to their schools. A case in a school does not automatically indicate that person caught COVID-19 at the school. 

Anyone who was in close contact with the infected person will be notified by the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit. 

Not all school boards specify whether a case is a student or staff member.
