COVID-19 outbreak declared at Saint Joseph Catholic School

 

The Thunder Bay District Health Unit (TBDHU) and the Superior North Catholic District School Board confirm that an outbreak of COVID-19 has been declared at Saint Joseph Catholic School in Geraldton.
 
Consistent with provincial guidelines, an outbreak is declared in a school when there are two or more COVID-19 cases in students or staff that can be linked within a school setting.
 
At this time, one additional individual associated with the school has tested positive for COVID-19. This individual is deemed to have acquired the infection in the school setting.
 
The school is currently operating virtually with no in-person instruction happening. Working with the school and school board, TBDHU will continue to monitor and assess the situation until the full risk period has passed.

Please read a letter from Dr. Janet DeMille, MD, FRCPC, Medical Officer of Health, Thunder Bay District Health Unit.
