JOHNSTOWN — An individual has tested positive for COVID-19 at South Edwardsburg Public School, the Upper Canada District School Board reported yesterday.

The school remains open and operating on the regular daily schedule. The Board assures that the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit is “closely monitoring the situation and has followed up to isolate all students and staff who have had a high-risk exposure.”

“Both the Health Unit and the school are taking all necessary steps to prevent further spread of the virus in the community, and in the school.”

The authorities do not release details about a COVID-19 case in a school directly to the public.

Schools report confirmed COVID-19 cases to the provincial government. It can take up to 24 to 48 hours for the information to be posted on the province’s tracking website, based on the timing of reporting.
