Teacher who tested positive for COVID-19 charged for not wearing mask

By News Staff

A Toronto catholic school teacher has reportedly been charged by the Ministry of Labour for not wearing a mask.

The itinerant music teacher tested positive for COVID-19 at the start of the month, leading to the weeklong shutdown of St. Charles Catholic School.

A spokesperson for the labour minister said the teacher has now been charged with failing to wear a mask and is set to appear before a justice of the peace in February.

The maximum fine is $1,000, plus victim fine surcharges.

Itinerant teachers travel from class to class or among schools. This teacher had contact with three classes in the school of 250.

A source told the Toronto Star that the teacher is also accused of failing to self-screen before coming to work, coming to school while symptomatic, and not self-isolating while ill.
