COVID-19: 15 cases at the Marie-Victorin School Service Center –


As of September 8, the Marie-Victorin School Services Center (CSSMV) confirms about fifteen positive cases of COVID-19 in eight of its establishments, including five at Adrien-Gamache elementary school, in the Arr. of Vieux-Longueuil.

In a letter from the CISSS de la Montérégie-Est addressed to parents of students at this elementary school, it is effectively stated that five people who attended the establishment on the 1ster September confirmed to be infected with the coronavirus.

“Following the investigation by the Public Health Department, all people who had close contact with these cases have been identified and the measures to follow will be sent to them,” indicates the document, of which the newspaper obtained a copy. If you receive this letter, it is because your child is not targeted as being a close contact of any of the cases. Its risk of exposure is estimated to be low. ”

The letter asks parents to be alert for the onset of symptoms of COVID-19 in their child.

In addition, the CSSMV identifies three positive cases at the Pierre-Dupuy vocational training center, as well as one case at the Charlotte-Tassé vocational training center.

In a table provided in the newspaper, we indicate two cases at Gérard-Filion high school and one case in André-Laurendeau and Mgr A.-M.-Parent schools, as well as at the international school of Vieux-Longueuil. .

These data do not agree in every way with the portrait drawn up by the lists published this Tuesday by the government of Quebec.

The CSSMV is not on the list of establishments where one reports at least one positive case, which however identifies the regional secondary school Héritage, of the CSS Riverside.

According to the list of schools with “potentially at least one case of COVID-19”, there are only Lucille-Teasdale and Adrien-Gamache schools.

Finally, in the list of the number of cases by region and by school service center, there would be no case reported to the CSSMV since the 1er September. The list traces ten cases throughout the Montérégie.
