The Thames Valley District School Board (TVDSB) says the school will remain open and school buses will operate.
They say staff, parents and guardians of all Banting students have been notified.
“Students and staff who are at risk will be contacted by MLHU and will be asked to remain in self-isolation for a period of 14 days,” said education director Mark Fisher.
The health unit says its working to track down close contacts.
Dr. Alex Summers, associate medical officer of health with the MLHU, says it considers the level of risk outside the group of close contacts as low, “[but] we are still asking members of the Banting community to monitor themselves for any symptoms of COVID-19 and seek testing should they develop.”
The health unit says it will not be providing any details about the case for privacy reasons, including whether the individual is a student or staff member.
Confirmed active cases within TVDSB is tracked online.
