Reporting COVID-19 Cases for Schools

Public Health does not receive cohort dismissal information from every school in Niagara. If you're a parent / guardian submitting your child's positive test result, you may not receive a follow-up call from a public health professional. See self-isolation guidance.


The following groups are encouraged to use the online reporting portal:

  • School administrator or support staff who become aware of a positive COVID-19 case
  • Parent / guardian of a child who has tested positive

Positive lab PCR and rapid antigen test results can be reported.

Don't report suspect or confirmed COVID-19 cases for staff / students who have only been working / attending school virtually or have not presented in person.

Child care settings

As of Jan. 14, 2022, child care settings are not required to report positive COVID-19 cases.

If a child care operator is aware of a positive case (rapid antigen or PCR) they should determine if an exposure occurred in the child care centre and provide the cohort dismissal letters if required.

Visit schools, child care centres, licensed home child care programs and camps during COVID-19 for more information.
