The purpose of this message is to share information regarding the Coronavirus (2019-Novel Coronavirus), as provided by the provincial Ministry of Health and the Public Health Agency of Canada.
Detailed information and updates regarding the Coronavirus are available on the Government of Canada website and the Government of Saskatchewan website. Individuals who have concerns about their health can call the provincial HealthLine at 811 for advice and support.
The Public Health Agency of Canada now recommends that travelers returning from Hubei Province in China should self-isolate for 14 days. They also recommend self-isolation for anyone who has been in close contact with a person who is ill with the Coronavirus. Self-isolation means individuals should not attend school, work, daycare, or sporting, cultural, social and religious gatherings.
At this time, Saskatchewan does not have a confirmed case of the Coronavirus, and the risk to Canadians remains low.
Prairie Spirit School Division follows the direction of the Ministry of Health and the Saskatchewan Health Authority in this regard to ensure the safety of our students and staff members.
