Confirmed Case of COVID-19
December 1, 2020
Manitoba Public Health officials have advised Hanover School Division on December 1, 2020 of two confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Grade 7 and Grade 12 at Green Valley School on November 23, 2020, when the individual(s) may have been infectious. Public disclosure of identifying information 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.
As noted in the PH letter, no close contacts have been identified at Green Valley School. No one is required to self-isolate from this exposure. Anyone who was in Grade 7 or Grade 12 is recommended to self-monitor for symptoms until December 7, 2020, and seek testing if symptoms develop.
The school 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.
