Drouin said that the region's schools continue to be secure despite a small number of outbreaks but that the outbreak at Herzliah is "bigger" with "sporadic" cases at different levels.
In one class, she said, eight students were affected by an outbreak.
As of September 15, there were a total of 410 diagnosed cases reported in school environments in Quebec, including 322 among students.
