In case a person tests positive, all teachers, staff, parents and guardians of students in the same class (group) will be contacted directly by public health and their school via email.
Teachers, staff, parents and guardians of students who are considered to be close contacts of a person with COVID-19 will be contacted directly by public health through the contact tracking process.
Kunz said an important measure that anyone can take is daily health screening.
Under the school board’s return to school plan, all students and staff are expected to complete a daily screening questionnaire before entering school.
Anyone answering any of the 16 questions is being told not to go to school and contact HealthLine 811 for further guidance.
The Holy Cross will be the second school in the province to offer voluntary in-school testing for the coronavirus. Testing will begin on September 17th.
Questions about COVID-19? Here are some things you need to know:
Symptoms may include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing very similar to a cold or flu. Some people may develop a more serious illness. People most at risk for this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions such as heart, lung or kidney disease. If you experience symptoms, contact public health authorities.
To prevent the spread of the virus, experts recommend frequent hand washing and coughing up the sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with others, staying home as much as possible, and keeping a distance of two meters from other people if you go outside. In situations where you can not keep a safe distance from others, public health officials recommend the use of a non-medical face mask or mask to prevent the spread of respiratory droplets that may carry the virus. In some provinces and municipalities across the country, masks or face masks are now mandatory in indoor public spaces.
