The Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board confirmed Tuesday that an individual at Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School had tested positive for COVID-19.
The board said they were notified of the case on Nov. 10.
This comes two days after three cases of COVID-19 were identified at a Kingston elementary school, Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School, which is now closed until Nov. 23.
The board did not say whether the person at Holy Cross was a student or staff member but did say the person was at home self-isolating.
“Public Health has advised that there is no risk to the school from this case. The school remains open,” a board statement said.
On Tuesday, KFL&A Public Health announced two new cases of COVID-19, a male between the ages of 10 and 19, who caught the virus through close contact, and a woman in her 40s, whose mode of transmission is still under investigation.
KFL&A Public Health did not immediately respond to a request for comment.View link »
