KFL&A Public Health has ordered the dismissal of two class cohorts and two bus cohorts that are contacts of a positive case of COVID-19.

One class cohort and Bus 154 from Bath Public School and one class cohort from Ernestown Secondary School and Bus 158 serving Ernestown SS and Odessa Public School have been asked to self-isolate until further notice.

Because COVID-19 Variants of Concern (VOC) are now in our community and can spread more easily, Public Health is taking additional cautions to help reduce spread. Further assessment is being done before determining how long students and staff will need to self-isolate. Public Health will provide affected families with an update as soon as possible.

All members of the school community have been notified and have been provided with direction from Public Health. KFL&A Public Health is working with the school to identify cohorts of students and staff who may be at risk of COVID-19 from this exposure. Not all students will be affected by this situation.

KFL&A Public Health, the schools and board are taking all necessary steps to prevent further spread of the virus both in the school and the community. Everyone should continue to monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 and screen students daily as most cases of COVID-19 are acquired in the home setting.

Thank you for your understanding and adherence to all public health directives to help ensure student and staff safety.
