Kitchener high school students get letters warning of exposure to coronavirus

Students and others connected to a Kitchener, Ont., high school have been sent letters by Waterloo Public Health over potential exposure to COVID-19, the agency confirmed to Global News on Tuesday.

“Yesterday afternoon, letters were sent home from public health to 80 members of the St Mary’s high school community,” said Dr. Hsiu-Li Wang, the region’s acting medical officer of health.

It was “to let them know that they may have had a low-risk exposure to COVID-19,” she explained, “because one of our nine cases now in Waterloo region is a member of that school community.”
