COVID-19 case found at École St. Mary School

The Regina Catholic School Division has announced a COVID-19 case at École St. Mary School on Monday.

The school division does not state whether the individual is a student or staff member, however it has resulted in one classroom and one bus being closed out of caution. Students from the affected classroom and bus will learn remotely until their return on December 4.

“We are working closely with public health staff to ensure necessary measures are in place to protect all students and staff. Any close contacts of the individual have been asked to self-isolate,” stated the school division in a release.

All other classrooms and buses remain open.
