Cantley student tests positive for COIVD-19

By Hunter Cresswell


Following just one week of elementary schools being back in session in the Gatineau Hills, two students have been pulled from class because of COVID-19 concerns.


A l’Orée-des-Bois Elementary School student in Cantley tested positive for COVID-19, the Commission scolaire des Draveurs stated in a May 16 press release. That same student was pulled from the school on May 11, the first day back, after the school board learned that someone they live with tested positive for COVID-19.


“Following an assessment by public health, the risk that other students in the class are infected is considered weak and they may continue to attend school,” the release, translated from French, states.
