While the number of new COVID-19 cases within London-area public schools has remained somewhat low over the past few weeks, a few new cases were reported late Wednesday evening.

The Thames Valley District School Board confirmed the new active cases at Mary Wright Public School in Strathroy, Masonville Public School in London and Springbank Public School in Woodstock.

All schools will remain open and only those contacted by the school board or the local public health unit about being a close contact of an affected individual will be asked to stay home and self-isolate for 10 days.

“A positive case at a school does not mean the individual was exposed to COVID-19 at a Thames Valley school. It is possible that they may have been exposed somewhere else in the community,” read a statement on the TVDSB website.

There are currently 25 active cases of COVID-19 at 21 local public schools.

A full list of new and past cases identified within Thames Valley schools can be found on the school board’s website.
