COVID-19 contact tracing underway at nearly two dozen schools: TPH

BT Toronto | posted Tuesday, Sep 14th, 2021

The COVID-19 situation in city schools continues to escalate, with Toronto Public Health now conducting contact tracing investigations at nearly two dozen schools.

TPH says it’s conducting case and contact tracing for COVID-19 at 23 different school buildings.

The schools on that list include East York and West Hill collegiate institutes, Alvin Curling Public School and Milne Valley Middle School.

The number of schools across Ontario affected could be higher.

Data shows 273 confirmed cases in the province, just days into the school year.

This comes as calls grow louder for the Ford government to take immediate action on class sizes to prevent the spread of the virus.

The provincial NDP says class sizes need to be cut immediately amid what Andrea Horvath calls “alarming reports of classroom crowding”

The ministry of education says school boards have the funding and flexibility to choose to re-allocate staffing to meet current class size requirements.
