COVID reminders

We have had a significant increase in COVID-19 cases over the past week, especially at the MHS.  Below is a link to the COVID-19 dashboard that was updated at the end of the day yesterday.  We want to remind the school community of the key COVID-19 protocols during this current rise in cases.

COVID-19 Dashboard –

Key Message – Stay Home When Sick
Individuals presenting with the COVID-19 symptoms should stay home and not return to school until:

  • They have an improvement of symptoms
  • Have been fever free for 24 hours without medication; or
  • Have a negative PCR or rapid COVID-19 test

Protocol for an Individual who Tests Positive for COVID-19:

  • A positive individual must self-isolate for a minimum of 5 days after symptom onset or after positive PCR or rapid test, if asymptomatic.
  • A positive person may return to school or work after 5 days once they have:

    Been without fever for 24 hours (and without taking fever-reducing medications); and

    Experienced improvement in other symptoms.

  • A positive person should not return to school or work until they have met the above criteria.

  • Following the five day isolation period it is required that the positive individual wears a mask for five additional days when around others other than when eating, drinking or outside.  The individual will no longer be required to wear a mask once they are 10 days from symptom onset or after a positive test, if asymptomatic.

Please report any positive test results to your school nurse:
