A staff member at a Toronto Catholic school has tested positive for coronavirus, causing the school to temporarily close this week.

The Toronto Catholic District School Board made the announcement on October 4, after receiving notice of the confirmed coronavirus test and discussions with Toronto Public Health.

St. Charles Catholic School, located near Dufferin Street and Lawrence Avenue West in the North York region, will be closed as of October 5 until October 9, according to a tweet by the TCDSB.

Last week, a school in Scarborough was closed after Toronto Public Health has declared a COVID-19 outbreak at Mason Road Junior Public School.

According to the school board’s COVID-19 dashboard, the staff who works at the school also works at St. Demetrius Catholic School, St. Mark Catholic School, St. Roch Catholic School, and St. Ursula Catholic School.

Daily Hive has reached out to the TCDSB for more information.
