Out of respect for the privacy of the individual, personal health information and identifiers will not be released.

Hamilton Public Health Services has indicated that there are no school-related close contacts with this individual and therefore no risk to the school.

We will continue to work closely with HPHS to ensure all health and safety measures are in place to prevent transmission to other students and individuals in the school community. Students and staff should continue to attend school, unless directed otherwise by HPHS, and to screen daily for COVID-19 symptoms on the provincial COVID-19 school screening website.

Please follow the directions provided in the COVID-19 school screening. If your child(ren) develops a single, new COVID-19 symptom, they must stay home from school and should get a COVID-19 test. To book a COVID-19 test, please go to
