COVID Case Identified, School Remains Open

December 8, 2020 – the Saskatchewan Health Authority informed us that there was one case of COVID-19 in an individual at George Lee School. 

For the safety of students and staff, and in consultation with Public Health, we have informed all close contacts and provided them information about self-isolation. The affected students and class will begin remote learning on Thursday, December 10, 2020.

As this information was shared during the school day, no automated telephone calls were made to school families.

Letters will be sent to all school families on Tuesday, December 8, 2020. The school is open for all other students on Wednesday, December 9, 2020.

If there are any additional close contacts at the school, they will be contacted directly by Public Health. A close contact is someone who has been within two metres (six feet) of someone for a cumulative 15 minutes. 

If any staff, student or school family members show any symptoms, they should please stay home and contact Healthline 811. Symptoms are described here.
