It looks like schools could be seeing an extended Christmas break this year. That's what Premier Brain Pallister and Dr. Brent Roussin hinted at this afternoon.

Dr. Roussin said gatherings this Christmas are still likely going to happen so he is proposing an extended Christmas break for schools. This will give us a sort of incubation period, so if anyone contracts the virus during the holidays this extended break might be enough time for the individual to start seeing symptoms, and get tested before they go back to school and potentially spread it.

This idea is currently on the table and is being discussed but no decision has been made yet. The Education Minister Kelvin Goertzen will make the call when and if there is one to make.
