Anyone who visited Presteign Heights Elementary School, at 2570 St. Clair Ave. E., on voting day — from 9:30 a.m. Sept. 20 until the end of all voting and counting of ballots — is asked to self monitor for symptoms and to get tested if they develop.

This recommendation applies to the public and staff, and includes those who were fully vaccinated.

Elections Canada has also advised Toronto Public Health (TPH) of the potential exposure at the Kingston Road United Church polling station at 975 Kingston Rd. on Sept. 11 and 12 between 8 a.m. and 9:30 p.m.

No further details were provided about the source of the potential exposure.

“As COVID-19 and the more transmissible Delta variant continue to circulate in the community, residents are urged to start their COVID-19 vaccine series or to get their second dose, if they haven’t done it yet,” a TPH statement released Thursday says.

“Residents of Toronto are reminded to continue practice public health measures such as physical distancing, wearing a mask when distancing is not possible, and washing their hands often.”
