Peel District School Board has disclosed another positive COVID-19 case within one of their offices in Brampton on Friday.

In an email to Daily Hive, a PDSB spokesperson confirmed the positive case of an individual who had been in their North Field Office on August 28.

“While Peel Public Health cannot comment on specific cases, they confirmed that they are investigating and will determine the places the person went while infectious (e.g., to work or public places) and who their close contacts were,” said Michael Logue, Superintendent of Education in a letter shared with Daily Hive.

“The identity of the individual is protected under privacy legislation and cannot be shared.”

This is the second confirmed COVID-19 case at one of their facilities disclosed on Friday.

An employee at Ross Drive Public School in Brampton had tested positive for the virus on August 27.

The office remains open and cleaning has been done at the location where the individual has been. Peel Public Health will advise PDSB if there are any other measures that need to be taken by everyone to reduce the risk of transmission.
