We understand there may be some concerns regarding the coronavirus, also referred to as convid-19, and its possible impact in Pembina Trails.
You may already be aware that a few weeks ago, a cluster of cases of pneumonia was reported in Wuhan, China. The virus is now known as coronavirus. To date, there have been no confirmed infections anywhere in Manitoba. The Public Health Agency of Canada has assessed the risk associated with this virus as low for Canada and for Canadian travelers.
Pembina Trails School Division aims to be proactive when it comes to the health and safety of our students and staff. We want our community to know, that we are monitoring the situation closely and working with Manitoba Education and the province’s team of health professionals.
We encourage families to take a moment and visit the Public Health Agency of Canada’s website for current information on infection and precautions to take during the flu season. Pembina Trails also has the following policy that offers useful tips on preventing the spread of infection and staying healthy. As always, if your child is feeling unwell please keep them at home.
Specific health concerns should be directed to your family physician or by calling the WRHA Health Links line at 204.788.8200
