Now, as of September 14, 223 schools in total across the province have reported positive cases of the novel coronavirus, according to figures posted on the website of the Government of Quebec.

A list shows that the Montreal region is currently most affected, with cases in 60 schools.

A previous version of the list showing schools with at least one COVID-19 case as of September 1, reported that 70 Quebec schools — including two Montreal schools — had cases. 

According to the government website, "In case of a positive test result, all school parents systematically receive a notice from the school principal, and schools are working hand-in-hand with regional public health authorities."
