Province of Manitoba Media Bulletin

September 9, 2020

Public health officials are advising that a confirmed case of COVID-19 attended Churchill High School, located at 510 Hay St. in Winnipeg, and used Winnipeg Transit on Tuesday, Sept. 8. 

The student, in Grade 7, Room 20, was a case identified earlier today in Bulletin #182 and attended school for a limited time while asymptomatic. The school and cohort are being notified, and cleaning protocols have commenced out of an abundance of caution. 

The risk is deemed low as physical distancing was maintained while at school and a mask was worn on the bus and in school the entire time. There are no close contacts connected to the case and Public Health has not advised anyone to self-isolate. Others who were at the sites on Monday do not need to self-isolate, but should self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19. 

Times of exposures and the bus route are listed online and can be found at: www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/updates/flights.html#event.

The Public Health investigation indicates that transmission was not acquired at school. 

Public Health does not advise individuals go for asymptomatic testing. If people develop symptoms, they should self-isolate and visit www.manitoba.ca/covid19/ to use the online screening tool, or call Health Links–Info Santé at 204-788-8200 or (toll-free) 1-888-315-9257 for health guidance on how to seek testing. 

If you are waiting for test results, it is important to self-isolate until you receive your results. Information on self-isolation can be found at: https://www.gov.mb.ca/asset_library/en/covid/factsheet-isolation-selfmonitoring-recoveringhome.pdf.

The site is not being elevated according to the Pandemic Response System given the low risk and lack of close contacts. 

Public health officials strongly encourage all Manitobans to return to the fundamentals to help stop the spread of COVID-19. This means staying home if you are sick, washing/sanitizing your hands, covering your cough and physically distancing when you are with people outside your household. If you cannot physically distance, wear a mask.
