Leadership with the Keewatin-Patricia District School Board has closed one classroom at Evergreen Public School effective immediately after one student tested positive for COVID-19.

Families not contacted by school staff can attend school as normal on Friday.

The positive case is being followed up by the Northwestern Health Unit and all contacts of the case will be called on Friday and given instructions by public health.

The school board is working with the NWHU to make sure all potential risks are minimized.

Members of the school community are reminded to take the Government's self-assessment tool daily before attending school.
