Cases of COVID-19 have been identified at four public schools in London and the surrounding area.

On Thursday, the Thames Valley District School Board (TVDSB) reported single cases of the virus at A.B. Lucas Secondary School, Wilton Grove Public School, and Saunders Secondary School in London.

The school board also reported another case at Roch Carrier French Immersion Public School in Woodstock.

The schools remain open and buses will operate as usual.

Parents, guardians, and staff at all of the schools have been notified and Southwestern Public Health and the Middlesex-London Health Unit are working to identify close contacts of the infected individuals.

“If you are not contacted by the health unit, your child is not considered to be at risk. The health unit will only contact those staff and students who have been identified as a close contact and will advise them to stay home from school and quarantine for a period of 14 days,” the school board said in a statement.
