Region of Waterloo Public Health is confirming six more COVID-19 cases in local students. 

This includes three students at Chicopee Hills Public School in Kitchener, but no outbreak was declared.

They say two of the students, who were last in the building November 26, did not go to school during their infectious period, so no high-risk contacts were identified.

Another student at the school was last in the building November 24, and some staff and a student cohort were sent into self-isolation.

Public health says none of the three cases are linked to the school.

Meantime, a student at Linwood Public School was last in the building November 26, with their high-risk contacts including some staff members, a student cohort and some students who travel to school with the positive case.

A case at Grand View Public School in Cambridge was last in the building November 25.

Some staff members, a student cohort and some students in the Extended Day Program were told to self-isolate.

There's also a student case listed at an unnamed program with the Waterloo Region District School Board.

In a statement to 570 NEWS, the WRDSB said they're not identifying the program, as it would risk identifying the individual who tested positive.

The Waterloo Catholic District School Board has also confirmed a staff case at Monsignor Doyle, plus another case in a staff member at St. Gregory Catholic Elementary School.

Public health will notify any high-risk contacts in both settings.

At St. Gregory, one classroom is being asked to self-isolate as a precaution.
