Parents/guardians and staff at Lombardy Public School in Smiths Falls received notification over the weekend that two individuals at the school have tested positive for COVID-19.

The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit is actively communicating with anyone who may have had a high-risk exposure and is closely monitoring the situation.

At this time, the health unit is not declaring this an outbreak. The school remains open and operating on the regular daily schedule.

Both the health unit and the school are taking all necessary steps to prevent further spread of the virus in the school and community.

The health unit urges parents/guardians to continue to use the COVID-19 School Screening Tool prior to each school day, as well as follow public health recommendations to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

The health unit and the school board do not release specific details about a COVID-19 case in a school directly to the public. You can find more information about COVID-19 cases in our schools on our COVID-19 Advisory Information page, or on the Government of Ontario website.

Schools report confirmed COVID-19 cases to the provincial government and it is tracked on the provincial website. It can take up to 24 to 48 hours for the information to be posted, based on the timing of reporting.
