In early September, three Alberta schools reported COVID-19 cases and delayed their reopening. 

But none of the schools that have reported cases since reopening are closing down, even temporarily. Bowness High School's case has sent an entire high school class into isolation, reported City News. 

Alberta Health Services is in the process of finding close contacts of those with infections and discussing safety measures with the schools.
