Confirmed Case of COVID-19
November 26, 2020
Hanover School Division has become aware of a confirmed case of COVID-19 in an individual who was at Elmdale School on Tues. Nov. 24. Public disclosure of identifying information (grade, cohort, or class) is at the discretion of Public Health and will not be released by the 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 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. If you have not been contacted directly by Public Health or the school, your child is not required to isolate at this time.
The school’s affected areas have 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.
An investigation by Public Health is underway. HSD will communicate official public health notices as soon as they become available.
In the interest of safety, we wanted to provide you with advance notice of this case.
