The North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit (Health Unit) is confirming that a member of the St. Theresa Catholic School community has tested positive for COVID-19.
The Health Unit says through case management and contact tracing, it was determined that there is no risk to the school community as the individual was not on premises during their infectious period.
The individual and all household members are currently self-isolating.
“This is a great example that shows the new COVID-19 school and childcare screening measures are working,” says Dr. Jim Chirico, Medical Officer of Health. “Because everyone in the household followed the daily screening requirements the individual was self-isolating and did not pose a risk to the school community.”
If you are a parent or guardian of a student at St. Theresa Catholic School and have questions, please call the Health Unit’s School and Child Care Call Centre at 1-800-563-2808 option 6.
