Two More Students Test Positive for COVID-19 in Kingston Schools

KFL & A Public Health has been notified that two Limestone District School Board students have tested positive for COVID-19.

One case is from a Loughborough Public School student and another is from Acadia module. This brings the total cases in LPS to 2, while there is one case in Module de L’Acadie.

On September 23, it was announced that a class cohort and a bus cohort had been dismissed early and were following public health protocols. Now an additional class has been asked to isolate and manage symptoms. The school also remains open at this time to all other students and staff.

The board says there is no requirement for L’Acadie Module students to isolate themselves.

“Affected members of the school community have been notified. At this time, the school remains open, ”the board said.

Cases where a positive case at a school does not pose a risk to the school include:
• The case is learning or teaching virtually and it has not been in school.
• The case was already isolated and did not attend school because they were previously identified as a close contact of a case.
• The case was not present at the school when they were infectious.

KFL & A Public Health and the school say they are taking all necessary steps to prevent further spread of the virus both at school and in the community.

“KFL & A Public Health is working with the school to identify groups of students and staff that may be at risk for COVID-19 from this exposure. Not all students will be affected by this situation. “
