Henderson Public School. 

Please note, it has been determined that these cases pose no risk to students or staff. As such, no cohorts will be required to isolate at this time. Instances when a positive case in a school setting poses no risk to the school include:
  • The case(s) is learning or teaching virtually and has not been in the school.
  • The case(s) was already isolating and not attending school because they were previously identified as a close contact of a case.
  • The case(s) was not present at the school when they were infectious.

KFL&A Public Health works closely with schools to ensure that necessary steps are taken to prevent further spread of the virus both in the school and the community.
