Two cases of COVID-19 have been reported at Beaverton Public School.
According to an email from Principal Peter Bozanis that was sent to parents Sunday (April 11), the two affected individuals were last in the school on April 1.
“The Durham Region Health Department has investigated and determined the individuals were not infectious at school. This is due to the time between when the individuals were last at school, when they tested positive and then developed symptoms,” the email reads.
“They have advised that no contact tracing is required in the school and that there is no risk to the school community.”
The email notes that staff and students who do not receive a call from the health department “are deemed low risk” and are being asked to self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 at the current time.
“Beaverton P.S. has continued to undertake and complete enhanced cleaning and disinfection practices approved by the health department and will remain open. No further action has been recommended at this time,” it reads.
“We will continue to take direction from the Durham Region Health Department and will provide further updates to the school community, if they deem it necessary.”
