Hinshaw confirms 98 new cases of COVID-19, one new death

At least 20 Alberta schools have reported cases of COVID-19 since students across the province started returning to classrooms a week ago. As a parent, learning that a teacher or other student who were never in the school while infectious, and contracted COVID-19 at a party or while on vacation, does not help me understand if my child is at risk. It suggests 22 schools have had cases including seven in Calgary and four in Edmonton based on recent letters and emails sent to parents.

She acknowledges people are concerned about face coverings for many reasons but says her recommendations on face coverings for schools comes from evidence gathered around the world.

"We are seeing this explosion of case reports".

WINNIPEG-Health officials say a student at a Winnipeg high school has tested positive for COVID-19.

"If your child is required to isolate, you will have received a call from the school", said the letter from principal Rick Stanley.

The division said that they have directed custodial staff to conduct enhanced cleaning protocols at Chinook High School.

But locals have resisted the move, clashing with riot police earlier this year to prevent construction from going ahead. Overall, there are almost 24,000 people in five Greek island camps built to handle fewer than 6,100.

No outbreaks have been declared at the schools and all remain open at this time.

Alberta Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Deena Hinshaw confirms 98 new cases of COVID-19 within the last 24 hours as well as one new death. "I will update Albertans on this work in the coming days, and we are committed to continue improving the online map".

Hinshaw added while there are 16 cases of the illness in 16 schools across Alberta, none met the requirement.

Active cases have also been on the rise over the past two weeks, jumping from 1,137 on August 24 to a high of 1,695 on September 7.

"This is a very disturbing trend just days into the school year", Hoffman said.
