Six people at three Niagara Catholic schools have tested positive for COVID-19, the school board reported Monday.
The cases were detected after testing over the weekend at the following schools: One person at St. Charles Catholic Elementary School in Thorold, two people at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Elementary School in Niagara Falls and
three people at Saint Michael Catholic High School, also in Niagara Falls.
Niagara Public Health has determined that the two cases at St. Vincent de Paul have no risk of transmission and no contact tracing is required.
Niagara Catholic said it is sharing this information as a matter of transparency to the communities it serves. Two of the cases at Saint Michael Catholic High School are also considered to have no risk of transmission.
Anyone known to have had contact with the individuals from St. Charles Catholic Elementary School and Saint Michael Catholic High School are being contacted and advised to self-isolate.
