A letter has been sent out to parents of a St. Catharines elementary school telling them that someone has tested positive for COVID-19.

School officials from Canadian Martyrs Catholic Elementary School issued the letter Saturday stating that an individual at the school tested positive and was attending the school while infectious.

The letter states the positive confirmation was made today, and public health will be informing close contacts of the person this weekend.

A case has also been confirmed at Holy Cross Secondary. Read more about that here.
