Alberta schools remain open

Alberta recommends schools remain open. The World Health Organization does not recommend school closures as the only way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in children. Schools should take steps to protect the health of students and staff, including eliminating large gatherings of students; ensuring no more than 250 people are in the same room at any given time; and considering cancelling extracurricular activities that involve physical contact.
