"Last night one of our parents was informed they have tested positive for COVID-19. We wish this person all the best at this challenging time for them," the post said.

"Their child has developed symptoms and was tested early this morning. The child is a student in our Champagnat Learning Experience.

"We are now waiting for this student to receive their results, but the advice we have received is to be proactive in our response."

Anyone who has visited a tier one site during any these times must get tested immediately and quarantine for 14 days from the exposure.
