Single Case of COVID-19 Identified at Champlain Discovery Public School

(Pembroke, Ontario – March 6, 2021) - We have been notified by the Renfrew County and District Health Unit (RCDHU) that a case of COVID-19 has been identified in an individual at Champlain Discovery Public School.

The school remains open to in-person learning for all students and we are working closely with the RCDHU to ensure necessary measures continue to be in place to protect all staff and students. This includes cleaning and disinfecting all items touched by the individual, and removing and storing items that cannot be cleaned and disinfected (paper, books, etc.,). Our Facilities staff have enacted cleaning protocols.

The Renfrew County and District Health Unit will be contacting only those who have been identified as a contact with the COVID-19 positive individual. If you are not directly contacted by the RCDHU, then you are not identified as a close contact and can continue to attend school and work.

All students directed to self-isolate will be supported in maintaining school work during the designated period. Communication regarding this will be provided directly from the school to any impacted students.

We remind parents/guardians of students, as well as any staff/visitors/volunteers to monitor for any signs or symptoms of COVID-19. Please remember to complete a self-assessment prior to each day prior to attending school and do not attend school if you have not passed the self-assessment. Please also follow other public health recommendations such as performing hand hygiene, wearing a mask, and practicing physical distancing.

If you/your child has any of the symptoms of illness listed on the provincial assessment checklist, please call the Renfrew County Virtual Triage and Assessment (VTAC - 1-844-727-6404) or your family doctor to arrange for testing.
