As media continues to cover cases of the novel coronavirus, parents and guardians in the Louis Riel School Division (LRSD) may have questions or concerns about its potential impact in the division.
Staff in schools and throughout LRSD will continue to closely monitor the situation and are aware of the proper health and safety precautions and procedures
to ensure the well-being of our staff and students. The division also works closely with representatives from Manitoba Education as well as Manitoba health professionals to stay on top of the latest information and developments.
Currently, there are no confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus in Manitoba. The risk of infection to Canada and Canadian travellers remains low
As always, common prevention measures during the cold and flu season such as proper handwashing with soap and water, covering your mouth and nose while coughing or sneezing and staying home when you are sick are encouraged.
Specific health concerns should be directed to your family physician or by calling the WRHA Health Links
line at (204) 788-8200 or 1-888-315-9257 (toll-free).
