Cornwall School Shuts Down For Week Because of Covid-19 Outbreak

SEPTEMBER 12, 2021 – Another Cornwall Ontario school has announced a Covid outbreak. The city allowed an unmasked anti-vax rally in front of the hospital on September 4th which has led to community spread.

Parents have also stated their concerns on social media about schools shared busing of their children. IE students from different schools share seats on a bus to and from school.

From the Viscount Alexander Public School facebook page:

Parents/Guardians: An individual at our school has tested positive for COVID-19. The Eastern Ontario Health Unit has identified multiple confirmed and probable exposures at our school and is closing our school effective immediately until at least September 20.
