The Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) is reporting its first two cases of COVID-19 of the new school year at two separate schools. 

A staff member at ​St. Basil-the-Great College School, a secondary school, and a student at St. Gerald Catholic School, an elementary school, have both tested positive for the novel coronavirus, the board said in a message on its website on Sunday.

Both schools are in North York and both remain open, but the board said the schools will receive a letter from Toronto Public Health to notify them about the possible exposure. 

It is unclear whether both infected people were exposed to the virus at their respective schools, or whether they acquired the disease elsewhere in the community.
