Toronto Public Health (TPH) has closed an Etobicoke high school to in-person learning due to an outbreak of COVID-19.
Silverthorn Collegiate Institute, located at 291 Mill Road, had to be closed to protect students and staff, TPH said.
“COVID-19 activity in the school setting is not unexpected, given that the virus continues to circulate in Toronto and how transmissible Delta variant is,” TPH said in a news release Monday night. “This is why TPH continues to remind all residents to get vaccinated as soon as possible if they have not already done so.”
The Toronto District School Board said in a tweet Monday night that all students will move to remote learning for now.
TPH said there are 21 active school outbreaks and 30 active investigations in 122 schools.
