Raymond High School is among a handful of schools in southern Alberta to report a case of COVID-19 within the first week of classes resuming.

A notice posted on the school’s website on Sep. 6 says one individual has been diagnosed with the illness, though it doesn’t specify if it’s a student or staff member.

School officials note that Alberta Health Services (AHS) has already completed contact tracing, and all parents, students, staff, visitors and volunteers who came in to close contact with the COVID-19 infection have been notified.

Maintenance teams at all of Raymond’s schools were ordered to conduct enhanced cleaning over the weekend, and classes are underway as usual on Tuesday (Sep. 8).

There have also been COVID-19 cases reported at four schools in Calgary, one in Canmore and one in Okotoks since last week. All of those schools will remain open for now, and AHS is also reviewing health and safety protocols at each location.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
