Other schools include St. John Vianney Catholic Elementary School, St. Anne Catholic High School, Sandwich Secondary School, Al-Hijra Academy, Cardinal Carter Catholic Secondary School and St. Joseph’s Catholic High School.
St. Joe’s is the only one to close so far this school year. It reopened Thursday after a week of online only classes.
WECHU says an outbreak will be called if two or more COVID-19 cases are confirmed in students, staff, or visitors within the school in a 14-day period. At least one of these cases should be believed to have been infected while in the school, or during a school activity. This may include school transportation and before-school and after-school care programs.
