The Saskatchewan Health Authority has declared a COVID-19 outbreak at E.S Laird Middle School after the recent positive cases.

On Tuesday,  the Lloydminster Public School Division was advised of three positive cases.

This brings the total cases to four at the school after the first was confirmed on October 22nd.

SHA Medical Health Officer Dr. M. Nsungu sent out a letter for parents and families about the outbreak.

  1. I don’t really agree with this. I get it we are trying to keep school up and running but my sister goes to that school, if there has been multiple cases who knows if that kid or teacher has been around anyone else that has been in contact with my sister or her friends. This plan is dangerous and I 100% do not agree with it. You cannot contact trace students that leave the school at lunch or even just roam the halls to go class to class.
