A student at Orchard Park Secondary School has tested positive for COVID-19.

The student tested positive on Monday, the school said.

The Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board says there are no student or staff class contacts related to this case.

“The student was not in the building when there would be a risk of exposure. As such, public health considers the risk to other students and staff low,” the school told parents.

In total, the province has reported 45 positive cases related to Hamilton schools and child-care centres.
