Another school identified with a probable COVID case

The Grey Bruce Health Unit is working with Bluewater District School Board to address a probable case of COVID-19, associated with Georgian Bay Community School in Meaford, ON. 

Currently there are no outbreaks (i.e. evidence of transmission from person to person) in any schools or childcare centres in Grey Bruce. One bus route is involved with this probable case.

In this situation, the individual with probable COVID-19 has been contacted directly by our COVID-19 Case and Contact Management Team. We have worked with the individual and the school, along with the school board and have identified all others, both in and out of the school environment, who may have been exposed and have determined their risk level. Any cohorts that have been identified as contacts to the case have been excluded from school at this time.

One class will be remaining at home for the time being as a precaution, otherwise, the school will remain open.

Those NOT contacted by Public Health need not take any additional steps including asymptomatic testing.

As a reminder to the public, if you develop symptoms consistent with COVID-19, please proceed to your nearest assessment centre for testing.
