AHS declares COVID-19 Alert at Gilbert Paterson Middle School

Alberta Health Services has been working closely with Lethbridge School Division to support and manage the safety of our schools.
On Jan. 12, Lethbridge School Division received notice there is an Alert at Gilbert Paterson Middle School. As a result, Gilbert Paterson Middle School is required to follow AHS direction and protocols.
As of Jan. 18, the Alberta Government now defines an Alert as one to four cases of COVID-19 within a particular school.
AHS has notified the Division that there are three COVID-19 cases at Gilbert Paterson Middle School. At this time, based on advice from Alberta Education, Gilbert Paterson Middle School will remain open.
AHS has proceeded with defining close contacts of the three cases within the school context, and those
individuals will be contacted by the school via email.
Those individuals will be required to quarantine immediately for the period defined by the close-contact letter.
