The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) will declare a COVID-19 outbreak at Marion M. Graham Collegiate after two people at the school tested positive, according to the school division.

A press release, sent out on Saturday evening, said the health authority informed the school division earlier in the day and that the division has now notified the entire school community.

The release also said a single person at another high school, Centennial Collegiate, also tested positive.

Contact tracing is underway at both schools.

The school board is not cancelling any classes. The release said classes will resume on Tuesday, since Monday was already scheduled for professional development.

Fifteen people have tested positive at 14 schools in the public division. Only Marion Graham Collegiate has two cases.
