Important Message for Our Familieshttp://ask.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/389Important Message for Our Families<p>Dear Parent/Guardian, </p><p>The Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit (SMDHU) has identified that there is an outbreak of COVID-19 at your child's school. An outbreak is defined as two or more lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases in students and/or staff (or other visitors) with an epidemiological link (i.e. shared space with each other), within a 14-day period, where at least one case could have contracted COVID-19 in the school (including transportation and before/after school care). </p><p>The SMDHU has conducted an investigation and letters have been sent to anyone they have identified as a close contact.<strong> Please be assured that if you have not received a letter from the SMDHU, your child is not considered a close contact of the individual who tested positive for COVID-19. </strong>In this case, your child may continue to attend school if they complete and pass the daily <a href="https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening/">COVID-19 school screening</a> tool. </p><p>As always, please continue to:</p><ul><li>Monitor your child for symptoms of COVID-19 every day before school.</li><li>Allow your child to attend school as long as your child does not have symptoms of COVID-19.</li><li>Remind your child about the importance of masking, handwashing and physical distancing.</li></ul><p>Due to privacy laws, the health unit will not release personal or identifying information about any staff or student who is ill, unless deemed necessary.</p><p>For more information, please read: <a href="https://www.simcoemuskokahealth.org/docs/default-source/COVID-/Return-to-school/covidfaq-positiveatmyschool-final.pdf?sfvrsn=2">Someone at a School or Child Care Centre Tested Positive for COVID-19</a>, or contact Health Connection at 705-721-7520 (toll free 1-877-721-7520).
