Hamilton, Halton, Niagara and area news from CHCH – Hamilton, Halton, and Niagara news..

Niagara Region Public Health is offering COVID-19 testing to teachers at a Smithville elementary school.

A COVID-19 outbreak was declared at St. Martin Catholic Elementary School on Nov. 19.

Since then, the number of cases at the school has grown. There are now nine people who have tested positive for the virus. Two classes are self-isolating for 14 days as a result.

The Niagara Catholic District School Board says some of the cases are directly related to the outbreak, while the origin is unknown for others.

The school remains open as they say there is no widespread transmission.

Public health officials are facilitating on-site testing for staff members. This testing is voluntary. There will be EMS vehicles and staff in PPE outside the school Thursday.

Officials say there is no plan to do group testing of students. Parents who want to have their kids tested for COVID-19 can do so at a testing centre.
