Learn more about COVID-19 in schools in your community.

Similar to other provinces, Alberta will be moving to a different approach for school reporting that reflects the current situation. Details will be shared at a later date.

Overview

Public health measures are in place to support the safe operation of schools. This includes mandatory masking for grades 4 and up, physical distancing when possible, enhanced cleaning and daily symptom screening.

Similar to other provinces, with the growth of COVID-19 cases, Alberta is now focused on investigating cases in high-priority settings such as continuing care as well as those who work in health care.

Other cases, including in students and school staff, will still be notified of their test result and they will receive a call to ensure they are aware of their isolation requirements, but AHS will no longer have the capacity to do full case investigations for these non-high-risk cases.

As a result of this change, similar to other provinces, Alberta will be moving to a different approach for school reporting that reflects the current situation. Details on this will be shared at a later date.

Now that it has been more than two weeks since schools were in session, the schools listed as outbreaks/alerts have been removed, as this list is no longer current.
