COVID-19 Variant of Concern Case at Woodman School

March 30, 2021

Dear parents/guardians, 

An individual at Woodman School who was previously diagnosed with COVID-19 has recently been identified as having a COVID-19 Variant of Concern (VOC).

For everyone’s health and safety, we are working directly with Alberta Health Services (AHS) and the public health inspector to ensure all spaces in our school are thoroughly cleaned and any additional steps are taken, prior to the school re-opening following spring break. We will continue to work directly with and follow the recommendations of AHS, Alberta Education and Alberta Health.

AHS will communicate directly with all identified close contacts of the case and will provide additional information on testing recommendations and quarantine requirements for those directly impacted. More information on COVID-19 variants can be found at alberta.ca/covid-19-variants.aspx.

To help protect the well-being of our students and staff, please keep your child home after spring break if they experience any COVID-19 symptoms or have been out of the country in the last 14 days.

Please let the school know that your child is home because of COVID-19 and take the self-assessment or call Health Link at 811 to determine if you or any member of your family needs to be tested.

Thank you for playing a part in keeping our school community safe. If you have questions, please call Health Link at 811.
