COVID-19 Positive Case
May 9, 2021
We have been notified by Alberta Health Services (AHS) that a case of COVID-19 has been diagnosed in an individual from Buffalo Rubbing Stone School.
All students will continue learning online in their Google Classroom and Google Meets. We are working closely with AHS to ensure necessary measures continue to be in place to protect all staff and students. This includes the cleaning and disinfecting of all items touched by the individual, and the removal and storage of all items that cannot be cleaned and disinfected (paper, books, etc.) in a sealed container for a minimum of 72 hours.
Earlier today, I contacted each family or staff member affected by the positive case by phone and by email; AHS will be following up only with those individuals. If you were not contacted, your child(ren) are not affected by the positive case.
AHS encourages all close contacts to be tested for COVID-19.
We remind all staff 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 have 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.
We will continue to provide additional information to parents / guardians as it is available.
