Kenney Calls COVID-19 In Schools Inevitable, Smaller Classes 'Fictitious' - 2020-09-02
COVID-19 cases disrupted the reopening of two Alberta schools on Tuesday, but Premier Jason Kenney said his government has accepted that such infections are inevitable and don't warrant closing down all classrooms.
"We've always said that there will be infections in the schools ... that's why we've put in place a number of protocols based on the scientific advice of our chief medical officer of health in consultation with superintendents and school boards," he said.
"We believe it's a strong plan and we'll make future adjustments as necessary. We're all learning through this as we go."
