Confirmed Case of COVID-19
November 20, 2020
Manitoba Public Health has advised Hanover School Division of a confirmed case of COVID-19 in an individual on Bus #35. Public disclosure of identifying information is at the discretion of Public Health and will not be released by Hanover School Division.
Within 24 hours of a confirmed COVID-19 laboratory test, Public Health begins an investigation to identify individuals who may have been exposed. Public Health has access to enrollment information such as school class lists, bus ridership, and contact information for parents/guardians and staff. Anyone identified as a close contact of the confirmed case will be contacted directly by Public Health and provided instructions regarding self-isolation and COVID-19 testing.
Hanover School Division is working in collaboration with Public Health. All close contacts on Bus #35 have been notified. If you have not been contacted directly by Public Health or your child’s school, your children can continue to attend school.
The school bus has been cleaned, disinfected, and sanitized using our sanitization sprayer. Please be assured that HSD is working closely with Public Health to ensure necessary measures continue to be in place to protect all students and staff.
