RE: Notice to Staff and Students of COVID-19 Outbreak on Meadow Lake Town Bus E2 (Gateway, CHS, Jonas Samson)

Public Health staff are investigating cases of COVID-19 on Bus E2, Northwest School Division. The virus spreads from person to person by large, respiratory droplets, like from a cough or sneeze. This means that a person would need to have direct contact with droplets from a sick person or surfaces that they have recently touched. The risk of the general population on the school bus becoming infected because of these cases is low. If staff or students are identified as a contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case, Public Health will  contact them directly for follow-up.  

If anyone develops symptoms, please self-isolate at home and call Health Line at 811 as soon as possible to arrange for COVID-19 testing. If medical attention is required please call ahead to your health care  provider. If it is an emergency requiring urgent attention, call 911.
