On Saturday, The Thames Valley District School Board confirmed positive cases at both Arthur Ford Public School and Mitchell Hepburn Public School.

Each school currently has one active case.

All staff, parents, and guardians of the school communities were immediately notified. The schools will remain open.

The Health Unit is investigating to identify close contacts and follow up directly to provide specific testing advice.

Only those who are considered to be at risk have been notified to stay home from school and quarantine for 14 days. If you do not receive a letter from the school board, your child is not considered to be at risk.
