COVID-19 outbreak forces closure of another Toronto elementary school – .

Students at an elementary school in the city’s Wychwood neighborhood have been excluded from learning and in-person activities due to an outbreak of COVID-19.

The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) announced on Sunday that McMurrich Junior Public School will be temporarily closed starting Monday following a recommendation from Toronto Public Health (TPH).

All students will switch to distance learning during the shutdown, the TDSB said.

“We recommend a dismissal of the entire school as a precautionary measure to protect staff, students and the community from further transmission of COVID-19 within the school,” TPH said in a tweet.

“TPH will continue to work with our school community and have notified close contacts and asking them to stay home, monitor for symptoms and get tested. We will work closely with our school partners to determine when in-person learning resumes. “

According to the TDSB’s COVID-19 dashboard, there are three cases of active students at the school located on Winona Drive, south of St. Clair Avenue West.

Meanwhile, the Grenoble public school remains closed to in-person learning. Flemingdon Park Elementary School has 16 active cases among students, according to the TDSB.

As of Friday, 23 schools in the city were grappling with an outbreak of COVID-19.
