Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health (WDGPH) has declared that there is a COVID-19 outbreak at King George Public School. An outbreak means that there are at least two individuals who tested positive for COVID-19 and at least one of the individuals was likely infected at the school setting (including transportation and before/after school care).

WDGPH is undergoing contact tracing with the affected classes/cohorts of staff and students. Anyone who is determined to be a high-risk contact of the individual who tested positive will receive a “high-risk letter” with further information and directions for self-isolation. Staff or students who do not receive a letter from WDGPH are not considered a high-risk contact and can continue to complete the daily COVID-19 School and Child Care Screening tool and monitor for symptoms. If symptoms develop, please stay home and seek COVID-19 testing or follow the guidance from the screening tool.
