Mass screening at the day camp of the school of the Haute-Ville

Dépistage massif au camp de jour de l’école de la Haute-Ville

GRANBY – The mobile clinic the screening of the COVID-19, who was visiting at the school of the Haute-Ville in Granby Friday, was a resounding success.

Of the 127 children enrolled in the day camp on this site, 99 underwent a screening test, or 80%.

The City of Granby and the public Health had decided to hold this year after the three animators of the summer day camp have been reported to be positive in the coronavirus earlier this week.

None of the children crossed by TVA News Friday only presented symptoms.

If the parents have responded in great number to the call, it is especially to be reassured and to prevent contamination of the members of the extended family. They also want to avoid spreading the virus in their work environment and to be the source of a new outbreak.

Since a few days, the monitors of the other seven day camps in the city have the obligation to carry the cover face, as well as children of age secondary.

All members of the camp staff of the High City have agreed to undergo a screening test. In addition to the three facilitators who have already tested positive, no other case has been reported for the moment.

The results of the tests performed on children should be known by Monday.

Closed since Thursday, the site of the camp of the Upper Town will not reopen before Tuesday.
