The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit has declared an outbreak at St. Peter Catholic Elementary School in Tecumseh after receiving confirmation of an additional three positive cases of COVID-19 in the same cohort that was dismissed on April 4th.

A school outbreak is declared if there are two or more cases in a school and if there is evidence that at least one case could have been infected in the school.

The affected cohort and the school community has been informed that a variant of concern has been identified in this cohort. The school board says at this time, the outbreak is limited to the cohort that was dismissed and all other students and staff at St. Peter are deemed low-risk and may continue attending school as usual.
