COVID-19 Update: May 14, 2021
Briercrest has seven positive cases of COVID-19 to report.
Confirmed outbreak managed according to campus health protocols
Seven Briercrest Christian Academy students have tested positive for COVID-19. Upon receiving one positive test result, the student was immediately placed in quarantine. Contact tracing was carried out and all confirmed cases—seven in total as of Friday, May 14—are at home in isolation.
Impacted classes shifted to an online delivery format on Monday, facilitated by Briercrest Christian Academy’s proactive Return to Campus plan. The plan allows classes to transition online with minimal impact on student success.
As of Monday, May 10, all students affected by the Public Health Order have either returned home to quarantine in their family home or are in isolation.
Proactive campus health guidelines prevented further spread
Briercrest continues to monitor students and staff for symptoms through a daily health tracking and notification system. We are grateful for the collaboration of Briercrest Christian Academy staff, Prairie Hockey Academy, and the parents of students for their immediate response and cooperation that stopped any further spread of the outbreak.
Measures in place for ongoing student care
Briercrest continues to work closely with the Saskatchewan Health Authority to maintain proper health and safety protocols. We continue to monitor students and staff for symptoms through a daily health tracking and notification system. All students on campus have signed waivers indicating that they will adhere to Briercrest’s health guidelines, including daily health screening, the wearing of masks, and maintaining social distancing. We are grateful for the collaboration and guidance of the SHA and the creativity of on-campus leaders working to keep our campus safe.
