Overview

The school outbreak map shows the current status of COVID-19 in K-12 schools across Alberta. Schools that have 2 or more confirmed cases will be identified on the map.

Public health measures are in place to ensure a safer reopening of schools. This includes mandatory masking, physical distancing, enhanced cleaning, and daily symptom screening. If a case is confirmed, contact tracers and public health officials will be deployed to identify potential exposure and limit spread.

Definitions for confirmed cases in schools:

Alert (1 case)

  • Parents will be notified by their child’s school as soon as one confirmed case is identified within the school. This is known as an alert. These are not currently included in the map.

Outbreak (2+ cases)

  • An outbreak is declared when there are 2 or more confirmed cases in a school setting within a 14 day period where disease could have been acquired or transmitted in the school. Any school meeting this definition will be reported on the map.

Outbreak over

  • A school outbreak is declared over when there have been no new confirmed cases in a school for 28 days.
