The Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) has confirmed their first three positive COVID-19 cases.

As of September 21, one staff has been confirmed to be positive for the virus at St. Basil-the-Great College School.

And two students were found to have coronavirus, with one attending St. Gerald Catholic School and the other, St. John Paul II Catholic Secondary School.


“The Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) takes every precaution, following the guidance of Toronto Public Health, to ensure the health and safety of all students and staff members,” the website reads.

The school board pointed out that a confirmed case at school does not mean an individual was exposed to the virus at school.

“The individual may have been exposed elsewhere in the community.”

And when there is a confirmed case of coronavirus at the school, there will be a letter from Toronto Public Health informing the school community of the possible exposure.

To date, there has been a total of 72 cases in Ontario schools.
