13 daycare students in Cantley self-isolate after one tests positive for COVID-19

By Stuart Benson

Thirteen students who attended daycare at École Sainte-Élisabeth in Cantley were told to self-isolate after a student received a positive COVID-19 diagnosis.

Parents were notified on Aug. 31 by William Custeau, director of École Sainte-Élisabeth, that parents of children who had been in close contact with the child had been told to self-isolate and to contact public health authorities.

According to Mathieu Daoust, communication advisor for the Draveurs School Services Centre, classes had not yet started and only the daycare was open, and that the child who tested positive did not attend classes on Aug. 31.

The CSSD asked parents to monitor their children for symptoms and to immediately notify the school administration, stay home, and book an appointment for a COVID-19 test if symptoms develop.
