The Lloydminster Public School Division says Queen Elizabeth School has now been added to the schools SHA says are in an outbreak situation.

The distinction comes as there has been a second COVID-19 case found in an individual in the Grade 2-3 split class. When two or more cases are found in a facility or school, it’s classified as an outbreak under the Saskatchewan Health Authority’s parameters.

A formal letter from the SHA about the outbreak has been shared with families and the school community, as well as uploaded to the LPSD website.

This school is the third to have an outbreak declared by SHA within the last week, the other two being Rendell Park School and College Park School.
