The Keewatin-Patricia District School Board has received notification that a student of King George VI school has tested positive for COVID-19.

At this time, the Northwestern Health Unit has determined that there was no exposure to students or staff in the school and as a result, there are no classroom closures or additional steps required.

School community members are reminded to take the Government of Ontario's school screening tool before attending the school daily.
