SUDBURY, Ont. — Public health officials have ordered the closure of two more schools in Sudbury, Ont., after more COVID-19 cases were linked to outbreaks.
Public Health Sudbury and Districts is advising all students, visitors and staff at Jean Hanson Public School and Algonquin Public School to self-isolate and immediately get tested.
Specific classes were dismissed at the two schools last week when COVID-19 outbreaks were declared.
The health unit says it has since determined potential widespread infection at the schools.
It says the schools have no confirmed cases of a COVID-19 variant to date.
The closures follow the dismissal of two other schools – Lasalle Secondary School and Cyril Varney Public School – last week after five confirmed cases of COVID-19 variants were found.
