More COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in Brandon area schools.
The school division says a case was confirmed at Ecole O'Kelly at CFB Shilo last Friday in three separate grades, and at Riverheights School in Brandon in a Grade 1 classroom.
Also last week, a confirmed case of COVID at Vincent Massey High School in a Grade 12 class, and on school bus Yellow 4 and Red 5.
Brandon School Division says the infections were NOT acquired at school.
The government says beginning next week, COVID-19 immunizations will be available to young people at school-based clinics.
The clinics will be offered during school hours and in some cases, clinics will continue to operate outside school hours as a pop-up clinic for all members of the community.
Parents and guardians who wish to be immunized with their children or attend their child’s immunization can do during the pop-up clinic outside of school hours. School clinics are expected to run for four to six weeks.
