Students in two classes at Cardinal Carter Catholic Secondary School will have to learn from home for the next while.

The Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board confirmed a case of COVID-19 at the school in Leamington on Wednesday.

The impacted students have been told not to go to school on Thursday. They’ve also been given instructions by the health unit, which will let them know when they are cleared to attend class in-person again.

There are currently outbreaks of the virus at nine schools in Windsor-Essex. Mount Carmel-Blytheswood Public School and St. Angela Catholic Elementary School were added to the list on Tuesday. On Monday, an outbreak was declared at Giles Campus French Immersion.
