Two Confirmed COVID Cases at Montgomery Village PS

On October 14, the principal of Montgomery Village Public School, Brent Ellery, issued a notice to staff and families indicating that Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health (WDGPH) has confirmed that there have been two confirmed cases of COVID within the school community. It was determined that these cases do not create any risk to other students or the public beyond the general community risk, so no classes will be closed as a result of this exposure.

The notice went on to mention that the building is safe and open for students and staff and that the school has been thoroughly cleaned since the exposure as part of their enhanced cleaning protocol.

For those with further questions, it was advised that people please contact Public Health at 519-822-2715, ext. 7006.
