In each case, an individual with a confirmed case of COVID-19 had visited the school on the listed dates, though it does not necessarily mean everyone at the school has been exposed.

Public health workers are continuing to investigate each case and have initiated contact tracing for staff or students who have been in close contact with the positive case.
