The Greater Essex County District School Board confirmed its second COVID-19 case Monday, but says the individual did not attend the school in-person.
According to the public school board's website, the case is at its Public Alternative Secondary School (PASS) Mason Centre in Windsor. The board's public relations officer Scott Scantlebury could not confirm whether it's a student or staff member who has tested positive.
The school board later confirmed that after guidance from Windsor Essex County Health Unit, the case was now considered a community case rather than a school case because the individual did not physically attend the centre.
According to PASS Mason Centre's website, it is a secondary school for youth between the ages of 17 and 21 who can earn credits that allow them to re-enter a regular secondary school, graduate, get full-time employment or move on to get a post-secondary education.
