Region of Waterloo Public Health has confirmed that a student at Preston High School, last in the building on September 16, has tested positive for COVID-19. The identity of the individual is protected by privacy legislation and will not be shared.
Public Health is in the process of contacting all high-risk contacts of the positive case and will provide individual guidance to them. At the guidance of Public Health, high-risk contacts in the identified cohort and a few additional bus riders will be directed to self-isolate until at least September 30, and longer if symptomatic.
If you are not contacted by Region of Waterloo Public Health, your child is not considered a high-risk contact.
We will continue to take direction from Public Health and will provide further updates as necessary.
Communicating with WRDSB families, students and staff is a guiding principle of our Return to School plans. In accordance with guidance from the Ministry of Education, the Confirmed Cases of COVID-19 page will be updated on an ongoing basis with information regarding confirmed cases of COVID-19 involving a student or staff member in a school setting.
We thank you for your continued support during this time.
