Cohort at Winnipeg high school in self-isolation due to COVID-19 exposure

WINNIPEG — Grant Park High School in Winnipeg is the latest school to have a confirmed case of COVID-19 in Manitoba.

A spokesperson for Winnipeg School Division said they were informed by the province Wednesday evening that a person who tested positive was from Grant Park High School.

The school division says it has been told by public health officials that the infection did not occur within the school and so the risk to other students is considered low.

However, one cohort at the school will begin self-isolation and (the division is) awaiting further instruction from Public Health,” said Radean Carter, the spokesperson for the division. “In addition to normal enhanced cleaning, electrostatic fogging is being done at the school tonight.”

Grant Park is the 14th school in Manitoba to have a COVID-19 case since classes resumed in September.
