The notification was sent out just a day after the first case was reported.

St. Wilfrid remains open.

Alberta Health Services (AHS) is working to determine where the student contracted the virus and who they were in contact with.

Contact tracing is underway, and AHS may reach out to some families as part of the process.

According to the SOS COVID-19 tracker, there have now been cases at 32 cases in Alberta.

Health Minister Tyler Shandro says a new website is being created to keep people up to date on the situation.
