The province says out of an abundance of caution, a Winnipeg school has been notified of a student who attended class on Tuesday while asymptomatic.

The province says the student who tested positive did ride a Winnipeg transit bus but had a mask on the entire time.

The province says because the student wore a mask and practiced distancing the risk of transmission is low. They add that the student was at school for a limited amount of time Tuesday.

Public health officials say the student attended Churchill High School, located at 510 Hay St. in Winnipeg, and used Winnipeg Transit on Tuesday, September 8. The student is in Grade 7, Room 20 of the school. Times of exposures and the bus route are listed online.

The province says that the student's cohort has been notified and the school is commencing additional cleaning. 

"The school and cohort are being notified, and cleaning protocols have commenced out of an abundance of caution," they say in a statement.

The province says they are not recommending those who were at the site to self-isolate and to instead monitor for symptoms. They say there are no close contacts connected to this case.

The student did not acquire the virus while at school.
