Positive COVID-19 cases have been identified in two more Saskatoon schools.
In an emailed statement, the Saskatoon Public Schools Division (SPSD) said it was notified by the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) Monday afternoon of two separate cases.
One is at Colette Bourgonje School; the other is at James L. Alexander School.
The statement said communication about each positive case has been shared with the specific classroom at each school, as well as the two school communities. The division said the SHA is conducting contact tracing, but further details will not be released for privacy reasons.
Public health officials will directly contact people who may have been in close contact with the diagnosed people. Risk of exposure to anyone who was not in close contact is very low, the statement added.
Earlier on Monday, a case of COVID-19 was reported in Valley Manor Elementary School in Martensville. Last week, five Saskatoon Catholic schools identified cases of COVID-19.
