The app the Toronto District School board uses to screen for COVID-19 symptoms is working again, after it was back up and running Friday morning following a separate outage.

It went down for a little over an hour on Thursday, just as many secondary school students were trying to use it ahead of the first day of school.

Spokesman Ryan Bird said it was the first known issue with the app, which comes from a third-party vendor.

He said the board isn’t anticipating any more problems.
