Child and youth worker from Toronto school dies from COVID-19

A child and youth worker at a Toronto school has died after contracting coronavirus, sources confirm to Global News.

The sources said the educational employee worked for the Toronto Catholic District School Board.

A child and youth worker is someone who provides direct support to students who have social, emotional or behavioral issues in schools.

A child and youth worker typically requires closer proximity than any other education staff due to student behaviour and working virtually may not be an option, a source said.

More to come.
