Instances when a positive case in a school poses no risk to the school include:

•  The case is learning or teaching virtually and has not been in the school.
•  The case was already isolating and not attending school because they were previously identified as a close contact of a case.
•  The case 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.
