If there is a case of COVID-19 at school

As the school year starts, the province has indicated that schools will not be informed about individual cases of COVID-19.  Staff and students may choose to notify a school about a positive COVID-19 test, but it is not required.  If we receive notification of a positive case from Alberta Health Services, we will communicate with families in the affected class
Quarantine is not required for close contacts under current provincial direction. This means classes will not be required to quarantine if there is a case at school. However, individuals who test positive will be expected to quarantine based on the provincial requirements in place at that time.
We recommend that all students within the affected classroom have a COVID-19 test to ensure their own safety
If there is an outbreak of any respiratory illness at a school, our system will work with AHS to share information with the school community
Schools will continue to report an absence rate of 10 per cent or higher (due to illness)  to AH
