Two COVID-19 outbreaks have been declared at high schools in southern Alberta.
A letter sent to parents of students at Henry Wise Wood High School from Alberta Health Services says two or more cases have been confirmed at the southwest Calgary school.
It says the local medical officer of health has declared a COVID-19 outbreak at the school and public health is investigating to determine who may have been exposed to the virus.
A similar letter was sent to parents with children at Chinook High School in Lethbridge.
The letter from the medical officers of health from Lethbridge and Medicine Hat says public health staff are investigating cases at the school.
They say staff or students who have had direct contact with those people with COVID-19 will be contacted.
