News Release: Outbreak Declared at the École Dickinsfield School

Due to the recent identification of 3 COVID-19 cases at the École Dickinsfield School, Alberta Health Services has declared an outbreak.  École Dickinsfield School families were notified of these cases on December 7th and December 11th.

The Alberta Government defines an outbreak as:

  • if there are TWO OR MORE confirmed cases in the school setting (staff/child) within a 14-day period (one incubation period) OR
  • two or more confirmed cases (staff/child) that are epidemiologically linked

If staff or students have been identified as a close contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case, Public Health will contact them directly for follow-up. 

If staff or students have not been identified as a close contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case but develop core symptoms as listed on the daily screening tool, please self-isolate at home and complete the AHS COVID-19 online assessment tool or call Health Link at 811 as soon as possible to arrange for COVID-19 testing.  For more information on COVID-19 isolation or testing go to FMPSD's Stay at Home Info for Parents website.

Student and staff health and safety is our priority. We will continue to work diligently with Alberta Health Services.

Thank you for your continued understanding as we navigate this fluid situation.
