If you're worried about cases of COVID-19 in your child's school or daycare, you can go to a new web page. Queen's Park has launched an online summary of cases in the province, which includes a listing of the schools or daycares where they've occurred. As of this morning, there were 18 cases reported, and they were all in southern Ontario.
"As Ontario students return to school, we are developing new and innovative ways to combat COVID-19 in the classroom, including this webpage, which is just one way the Ontario government is leveraging technology to protect the health and safety of the next generation. By making it easier for students, parents, and teachers to access important information about COVID-19 in their communities, we continue to deliver on our commitment of building simpler, faster, better services for the people of Ontario," said Education Minister Stephen Lecce in a media release yesterday.
Lecce noted the province has spent $1.3 billion on a plan that is endorsed by Ontario's Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. David Williams.
The Northwestern Health Unit continues to list cases of the coronavirus in their catchment area, which includes Kenora District.
