The Kenora Catholic District School Board is reporting one case of COVID-19 at St. Thomas Aquinas High School.

The school board is working closely with the Northwestern Health Unit on next steps.

The positive case is being followed up by the Northwestern Health Unit and all contacts of the case will be called and given instructions by public health.

There is one positive case, and one class is closed.

Due to the KCDSB COVID-19 prevention strategies in place, those staff and students not contacted by the school can continue to attend school as usual.

For reasons of privacy, the KCDSB will minimize sharing personal information about any case and encourage others to avoid identifying individuals

At this time, it's unclear if this is a case that had already been announced or a new case of the virus.

Earlier today, the health unit announced two new cases of COVID-19 in the Kenora region. Marking the seventh consecutive day at least one case of the virus was announced for the Kenora region.
