Parents notified about positive COVID-19 test at Gatineau day camp

Parents of campers at the Jean-de-Brébeuf day camp in Gatineau have been notified that an adult in attendance tested positive for COVID-19.

Families received a call from a nurse Monday and also received a letter from the City of Gatineau, which runs the camp.

According to the letter, a copy of which was obtained by Radio-Canada, campers and adults must self-isolate until July 30 and further screening is recommended.

If children test negative and don't develop symptoms, they can only attend the camp again starting on July 30.

If a child does test positive for the virus or develops symptoms, parents are asked to notify camp management and follow the advice of Quebec's health ministry and social services.

The camp is held at Jean-de-Brébeuf school, near the city's Val-Tétreau district.
