None of the students have tested positive for COVID-19 but will attend class virtually along with their siblings as a precaution, according to Valeski.

Opposition NDP education critic Sarah Hoffman says there are at least 20 COVID-19 cases in schools, with 16 of those infections reported since Friday.

The School District of the Chathams, which serves students from Chatham Borough and Township, opened schools for a hybrid learning on Tuesday.

Lind's letter to families encouraged both those experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 and those who believe they have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 to get evaluated by medical professionals.

Each of the school systems described below started the year with hybrid instruction.

Of the cases reported in schools so far, Hinshaw says all were acquired from community transmission, not from within the schools.

"Those student-athletes and the staff member have been quarantined and the university, in conjunction with public health officials, is conducting contact tracing to identify any individuals with whom the student-athletes have been in contact with", the school said in a statement. "We need to be nimble and continue adapting our approaches bases on emerging evidence and the needs of schools and students".

The schools will continual virtual learning until they are considered "safe" to reopen.

The first case was reported at Henry Wise Wood on Tuesday. It's not clear how many of those cases stemmed from a possible party. In the purple tier, middle and high schools are not allowed to reopen, but elementary schools can reopen with a county-approved waiver.

"This includes assessing the classroom (s) setting, and identifying and assessing the close contacts of the case".

According to state guidance, if 5 percent of students or staff in a classroom test positive for COVID-19, an entire classroom should close.

There are now 562 active cases in Edmonton and 567 in Calgary, while the province's death toll from COVID-19 rose to 248 people.
