St. John outbreak declared over

The outbreak at St. John the Baptist Elementary School has been declared over by Hamilton Public Health Services, effective October 13, 2021. An outbreak is declared over after at least 14 days have passed with no evidence of ongoing transmission that could reasonably be related to exposures in the school. No further COVID-19+ individuals have been associated with the initial exposed cohort.

Please be reminded to screen daily for symptoms of illness and follow guidance on the COVID-19 school screening website to determine whether it’s safe to attend school.

Maintaining public health measures such as staying home when you are sick, physical distancing, hand washing and wearing a mask are important to reduce the likelihood of infection, contain outbreaks and protect those who are most vulnerable. Everyone has a part to play to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
