A case of COVID-19 has been detected at Félix le Chat daycare in Saskatoon, according to the facility’s director.
“There has been a positive case,” Béatrice Mbazumutima, director of Félix le Chat, said on Thursday. “We are following the guidelines of public health.”
She said contact tracing is underway, but deferred further questions to the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA).
A spokesperson for the SHA said it in a statement to Global News that it “does not disclose specific case locations.”
“Those impacted e.g., contacts would be informed as a normal part of public health response, and those not contacted by public health can rest assured that an assessment has been conducted,” said the SHA.
Félix le Chat daycare is attached to the elementary school École Canadienne Française but it has a completely difference entrance.
Le Conseil des écoles fransaskoises told Global News it is aware of the situation, and the division has notified families as a preventative measure.
The french school division says they are supporting the daycare — which is a separate entity — in any needs they may have.
