COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Update
Posted on 10/12/2020
A case of COVID-19 has been diagnosed in a student from Kinuso School. The student was contacted by Alberta Health Services as a known contact of someone who tested positive for COVID-19. The student went in for testing and has been notified that they are positive for COVID-19. The student has been in isolation since they were notified as a known contact. A second student in the same household additionally tested positive for COVID-19. They have also been in isolation for the same time period and received their positive test results. Both students are asymptomatic. The school will be listed on the Alberta COVID-19 school status map website as in outbreak. A school meets that criteria if they have 2 or more confirmed cases within a 14-day period. 

We are working closely with Alberta Health Services to ensure necessary measures are in place to protect all students.

Alberta Health Services will be contacting parents/guardians of students, as well as any staff/visitors/volunteers who may have been in close contact with the case. They will be contacting these close contacts by email.

We remind parents/guardians of students, as well as any staff/visitors/volunteers to monitor for any signs or symptoms of COVID-19. The Alberta Health daily checklist can be found here. Please remember to complete the checklist each day prior to attending school.

As a reminder, if you/your child has any of the symptoms of illness listed on the Alberta Health daily checklist, please fill out the online Alberta Health Services COVID-19 self-assessment or call Health Link at 811 and stay home/keep your child at home.

We will continue to provide additional information to parents/guardians as it is available.
