Exposures for PMH continue to be updated at: http://www.manitoba.ca/covid19/restartmb/prs/prairie_mountain/index.html#exposure
Link direct to the BSD website notice on potential Crocus Plains exposure. Grade 12, Monday November 9. Not believed acquired at the school. https://www.bsd.ca/news/pages/confirme-covid-19-case---crocus-plains-rss.aspx Link direct to the BSD website notice on the JR Reid potential exposure. Grade 4, Nov 9, 10, 12. Not believed acquired at the school: https://www.bsd.ca/news/pages/confirmed-covid-19-case---j.r.-reid-school.aspx And as a more direct source on Kirkcaldy Heights, the BSD notice on the Grade 8 November 9 potential exposure mentioned above: https://www.bsd.ca/news/pages/confirmed-covid-19-case---kirkcaldy-heights-school.aspx
None of the three above are on the provincial exposures page yet, but can be seen on BSD’s ongoing news postings at the link below along with the Betty Gibson potential exposure reported earlier today:
Brandon School Division is reporting another potential exposure at Earl Oxford School... the Grade 1/2 Class on November 10. Not believed to be acquired at school: https://www.bsd.ca/news/pages/confirmed-covid-19-case---earl-oxford-school.aspx
City is confirming a potential exposure in connection with a COVID positive employee in sanitation. If have visited the scale at the landfill from Nov 9-13, are asked to self-monitor for symptoms. Full details at: https://www.brandon.ca/public-notices-details?var=6004
Evidence of how easily the virus spreads and the fact that it's been very much present in the city this month in more than just the announced school cases and the small handful of exposures that've been announced. Via the link below, Wheat Kings' Ridly Greig tested positive on the 8th and has since been isolating at home in Alberta. From the link, Greig believes he got it in connection with an ice time in Brandon that would've been before the shift to 'red' in this region. Refers to "about four or five other guys that got it from the ice time." Good news is he's doing well and that the others he's referring to are said to have just mild symptoms: https://globalnews.ca/news/7471391/covid-19-delays-ridly-greig-hockey-canada-bubble/ Important to note that the Wheat Kings don't hold formal practices as a group at the moment and so the ice time Greig is referring to could've involved skaters from all walks and not necessarily Wheat Kings. Also worth noting that the province has said that cases are reflected in a region's stats only if they have a health card in that region. This might technically count as an Alberta case even though he says in the article that he believes it was acquired here. Assume also the case with any out of province positives tied to the Seymour Pacific Developments outbreak that Abbysmum mentioned above.
BSD advising of a positive case in the Grade 4 class at J.R. Reid on Nov 17 and 18: https://www.bsd.ca/news/pages/covid-19-case-confirmed-at-j.r.-reid-school.aspx
I should point out that notable by its absence in the JR Reid notice yesterday is the usual “not believed acquired in school” sentence, as noted in the Sun story: https://www.brandonsun.com/coronavirus/Confirmed-case-at-JR-Reid-School-573227741.html
Have to caution against making too many assumptions without more info but between that and the fact that the Nov 16 announced case was also Grade 4 there are questions worth learning answers to around the contact tracing in this instance. Should be pointed out that they have said that the school has been deep cleaned and will be ready for staff on Monday and students when classes resume on Tuesday.
Via BSD, a Massey positive in the Grade 11 cohort who attended school and may have been infectious on Nov 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 and 23. Not believed acquired at school: https://www.bsd.ca/news/pages/covid-19-case-confirmed-at-vincent-massey-high-school.aspx
