COVID Advisory

The DDSB is following the Ministry of Education’s Operational Guidance: COVID-19 Management in Schools should a case of COVID-19 be suspected or confirmed in a student or staff member. We will also be following any additional directions of the Durham Region Health Department, who has the responsibility to manage confirmed cases of COVID-19, including what happens if there is an outbreak. The Durham Region Health Department has more information about COVID-19 in schools that you can review on their Schools Reopening Toolkit.

Schools and the DDSB is committed to informing families and school staff if there is a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the school. We will be doing this in a message to families and to staff and posting information at the button you can click below.

Important: A positive case at a school does not ​mean the individual was exposed to COVID-19 at the school. They may have been exposed somewhere else in the community.
