Sask. Rivers notifies families of positive COVID-19 cases involving individuals connected to Big River schools

Students and staff from one classroom at T.D. Michel Public School in Big River will be isolating until March 10 after an individual associated with the class tested positive for COVID-19.

Saskatchewan Rivers Public School Division sent out a press release Saturday afternoon after informing staff and student families of the positive test.

Sask. Rivers says there is no evidence the case was acquired or transmitted at school. In-person learning will continue for all other classes.

An individual connected to Big River Public High School has also tested positive for COVID-19, but Sask. Rivers says no classroom isolations will be necessary.

The news release did not say whether the positive cases involved staff or students.

The Saskatchewan Health Authority plans to set up a mobile testing station in Debden on March 2.
