The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit dismissed two cohorts of students from two different catholic schools Wednesday after receiving notification of confirmed cases of COVID 19.

One class of 23 students was dismissed from St. Pius X Catholic Elementary School in Tecumseh. Another class of 10 students was dismissed from St. Anne Catholic High School in Lakeshore.

The board says they learned of these confirmed cases this morning and have notified the affected students that they are not to attend school tomorrow.

“We have been working with the health unit by providing lists of students and staff who may have been directly affected.The health unit is contacting any individuals, both students and staff, who may have been affected, and will give directions for them to follow,’ said
Stephen Fields, Communications Coordinator for the board.

Fields says a voice message to the both school communities was sent home Wednesday to reassure parents that if they have not been contacted by the health unit, they have not been identified as close contacts and their children may continue attending school as usual. Follow-up letters have also been sent home with students.
