The Nipissing-Parry Sound Catholic District School Board is reporting two active cases of COVID-19 involving two schools in North Bay.
The board’s website shows that three cohorts have been dismissed, two at St. Joseph-Scollard Hall and one at Mother St Bride.
Both schools remain open.
The cases were confirmed on Saturday, September 11th.
In a letter to parents at SJSH, the board writes that the Health Unit is working with the board to conduct contact tracing.
Students and staff who are considered a high-risk contact will receive further directions from public health.
Those considered low-risk exposures will not be contacted, however, self-monitoring for symptoms of COVID-19 is recommended.

The North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit reports eleven new cases of COVID-19 on the weekend.
Only one of them is in Nipissing District.
Across the region, there are 28 active cases, including eleven in Nipissing.
