Mason Road Junior Public School to reopen Tuesday following COVID-19 outbreak

Mason Road Junior Public School will reopen on Tuesday, a week after it was shut down over an outbreak of COVID-19.

The Toronto District School Board announced Sunday that the school is able to reopen as Toronto Public Health has finished its investigation.

More than 170 students and staff at the Scarborough elementary school were ordered to stay home and isolate last week while the school shut its doors after four positive cases of COVID-19 were confirmed by the school board, including one student and three staff.

TDSB spokesman Ryan Bird said Mason Road school was ordered to close so Toronto Public Health could investigate.

The outbreak was declared right after the city’s first outbreak of COVID-19 at Glen Park Public School more than a week ago.

Two other schools in Ontario, Monsignor Paul Baxter elementary school in Ottawa and Fellowes High School in Pembroke, closed after confirmed outbreaks.
