COVID Reminders - Procedures and Cohorts

Please ensure that you are sanitizing or washing your hands as you enter/exit the school and frequently throughout the day. As well, please follow the directional arrows in our hallways.


We also wanted to provide information to our students about Alberta Health Services guidelines around cohort groups. A COVID-19 cohort – also known as bubbles, circles, or safe squads – are small groups of the same people who can interact regularly without staying 2 metres apart.

A person in a cohort should have little to no close contact with people outside of the cohort. Keeping the same people together, rather than mixing and mingling, helps reduce the chance of getting sick, and makes it easier to track exposure if someone does get sick.

You should only belong to one core cohort. It is safest to limit the number of other cohorts you belong to reduce the risk of getting sick or spreading COVID-19.


Under Stage 2 of relaunch, core cohorts can include your household and up to 15 other people you spend the most time with and are physically close to.

This usually includes people part of your regular routine:

  • household members
  • immediate family
  • closest tight-knit social circle


Under Stage 2 of relaunch, you can participate in other cohorts in addition to your core cohort.

  • sports teams can play in-region only cohorts of up to 50 players and coaching staff (mini leagues) if the sport does not allow participants to keep 2 meters apart
  • performers can have a cohort of up to 50 people (cast members, performers and crew)

Sports and performing cohort numbers do not include parents or spectators.
