COVID-19: Holy Rosary Catholic Elementary School in London, Ont., temporarily closing

A London, Ont., elementary school will close for four days due to staffing and COVID-19 concerns.

In a statement issued Saturday, the London District Catholic School Board (LDCSB) announced that Holy Rosary Catholic Elementary School will be closed from April 6-9.

The LDCSB said half of the students and two-thirds of staff are self-isolating due to three positive COVID-19 cases at the school.

The closure is also due to the ongoing teacher and educational assistant shortage, according to the school board.
