City of Toronto-run summer camp child tests positive for COVID-19


TORONTO – Officials say a child attending a city of Toronto-run summer camp tested positive for COVID-19, which prompted the program to shut down for a week. City officials said the camper, who attended a program at the Barbara Frum Community Center, was sent home with symptoms last week and has been self-isolating since then.

They say the city learned on Wednesday that the child had tested positive for the virus.

Officials say some children in the program returned to the community center after the camper was sent home, while others attended another program at the Glen Long Community Center.

Programs at both locations will be closed for the remainder of the week and are scheduled to reopen on August 17 after a deep clean.

The city says none of the other campers or staff at either program have tested positive for COVID-19 or are showing no symptoms.
