COVID-19 Case Reporting - Schools
Effective October 6, the Government of Alberta resumed its online public reporting of COVID-19 cases in schools. Alberta Health will report the name of each school with at least two confirmed COVID-19 cases that were infectious while at school within a 14-day period. Staff, students and parents are encouraged to refer to the list to determine the schools on Alert or Outbreak status. Staff and families will also be notified by the school when an Alert or Outbreak status is declared. Schools are not listed if there are less than two confirmed infectious cases at school reported within a 14-day time period.
- Alert – two to four confirmed cases recorded within a 14-day period
- Alert – five to nine confirmed cases recorded within a 14-day period
- Outbreak – 10-plus confirmed cases recorded within a 14-day period
Starting October 12, Alberta Health Services now informs schools of confirmed COVID-19 cases that were infectious while at school or work. Close contacts of confirmed cases will continue be informed by email using SchoolMessenger as they have been throughout the pandemic.
