Student at Regina’s Thom Collegiate tests positive for COVID-19

On Friday, the Saskatchewan Health Authority informed Regina Public Schools that a student at Thom Collegiate had tested positive for COVID-19.

As a result of the positive test, the school decided to close two classrooms for the day.

Staff called all families of students in the affected classrooms, and sent letters to all Thom families. They add that any additional close contacts will be contacted directly by Public Health.

Staff and students from the two classrooms have been asked to self-isolate. Over the weekend, the school board will be informing people if they no longer need to self-isolate.

The school will be cleaned and disinfected, with the anticipation that all classes will resume next week.

The Saskatchewan Health Authority will contact any school family and staff member who may have been in close contact with the affected students. If any staff, students or school family members show any symptoms, they should please stay home and contact Healthline 811.
