Staff coronavirus case forces Toronto kindergarten class to self-isolate

Sep 25 2020, 2:21 am

An entire kindergarten class at Swansea Junior and Senior Public School has been told to self-isolate after a staff member tested positive for coronavirus.

In all, 26 children, one teacher, and one early childhood educator are required to stay home for two weeks, a Toronto District School Board spokesperson told Daily Hive Thursday.

The school passed the message on to families after receiving news of the positive test from Toronto Public Health.

Swansea is located just west of High Park, and has a total of seven kindergarten classes. The other six classes can continue as normal.

The school remains open.

Since students went back to school in September, Ontario health officials have discovered 210 coronavirus cases tied to the school setting. Across the province, 178 schools have seen at least one coronavirus case and two schools are currently closed due to outbreaks.
