INGERSOLL - A positive case of COVID-19 has been confirmed by Southwestern Public Health at Laurie Hawkins Public School in Ingersoll.

SWPH is currently investigating the case and getting in touch with close contacts. If you are not contacted by the Health Unit, it means your child is not considered to be at risk.

The TVDSB states they are following all of the proper health and safety protocols and the school remains a safe place for staff and students to attend.
