A student at William G Davis Public School in Cambridge has tested positive for COVID-19.

In a release, the Waterloo Region District School Board says the student was last in the school November 17.

High-risk contacts include some staff members, a bus cohort, and a student cohort, who will have to self-isolate until December 2.

If you are not contacted by Region of Waterloo Public Health, your child is not considered a high-risk contact.

This is the second student to test positive at the school, with the first case confirmed November 9.

A student has also tested positive for COVID-19 at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Elementary School in Kitchener.

This is the first student case at the school, though a staff member tested positive on November 17.

In a release, the school said that the new case is in the same cohort as the previous one, and an outbreak has been declared as a result.
