Three more Toronto schools close due to COVID-19 cases

Two elementary schools in North York and a Catholic school in Scarborough will be closed on Monday due to COVID-19 cases.

The Toronto District School Board announced on Sunday the closure of Brian Public School and Victoria Village Public School on the advice of Toronto’s public health.

The council said it would allow time to investigate cases of COVID-19 in schools. In the meantime, students will switch to online learning.

According to the TDSB COVID-19 reporting dashboard, seven students and two staff at Brian Public School have contracted COVID-19. Meanwhile, there are six student cases at Victoria Village Public School.

The Toronto Catholic District School Board also announced that St. Dominic Savio Catholic School will be closed due to an ongoing COVID-19 investigation.

“The school community has been notified and we will provide updates as they become available,” TCDSB said.

There are five cases of students at the school located in the Sheppard Avenue and Highway 401 area.

Two other TCDSB schools – St. Charles Garnier Catholic School and Our Lady of Victory Catholic School – remain closed due to COVID-19 cases.

“We will keep school communities informed as soon as reopening dates are confirmed,” TPH said.
