The day camp Vacation Club Youth that takes place in the secondary school High-Town of Granby has three cases of COVID-19. This balance sheet could, however, add up over the course of the next few hours, while a result is still awaited.
For the moment, the three facilitators have received a positive diagnosis and the other seven are not infected. The result of a single test is not yet back.
Although the children and the facilitators of the camp day are considered at low risk of contamination, the Town of Granby has taken the decision to temporarily close the camp, Thursday, Friday and next Monday.
The integrated Center for academic health and social services (CIUSSS) Estrie-CHUS is to establish a clinical screening mobile on Friday, July 10, in order to test all the children and staff who attended the day camp High City since last July 1. The operation of the screening will be held from 9 a.m. to 15 p.m. at the School of the High City.
Among the new sanitary measures, wearing a mask will be mandatory for all workers in the day camp and for all the children in the second age. In addition, each group will be divided into a bubble of four to six children.
The outbreak does not relate to the other seven day camps in the City of Granby.
