Several students and staff members at four schools in the London-Middlesex region are being told to stay home next week after five people tested positive for COVID-19.

The Thames Valley District School Board announced Saturday night that confirmed or probable cases of the virus have been detected at Emily Carr Public School, Evelyn Harrison Public School, and Delaware Central Public School. Two additional cases were also identified at Ryerson Public School.

“If you do not receive a letter from Thames Valley indicating the public health unit has identified your child as a close contact, your child is not considered to be at risk,” the school board said in a news release. “Only those staff and students who have been identified as a close contact will be notified and advised to stay home from school and quarantine for a period of 10 days.”

There are more than a dozen active cases of COVID-19 at Thames Valley schools.  All schools remain open except Lord Elgin Public School, which has been closed due to an outbreak.  For more information about these active cases, click here.
