The Government of Saskatchewan has released procedures for addressing students with COVID-19 symptoms at school.

School staff will identify an isolation area within the school for students presenting symptoms who are unable to immediately get picked up. The student’s teacher must alert the school official to escort the student to the isolation area.

The staff members must maintain proper physical distancing with the symptomatic student, and wear a mask and face shield during interactions. The student will also be provided with a mask and asked to wear it as long as it is safe for the child to do so.

The student’s caregivers will be immediately contacted to remove the child from the school. Staff will also notify public health of the situation. The caregiver or emergency contact will be responsible for picking up the child. Staff will not transport the child from the school.

An assessment will be conducted by health officials who will direct the school on next steps.

Isolation areas must be disinfected by non-teaching staff. School officials will organize the timely cleaning of the students classroom and desk.

“If a teacher develops symptoms consistent with COVID-19, they must inform their designated school official to provide alternative arrangements for in-class instruction, as well as to notify their local Public Health contact to conduct an initial assessment and provide direction to the school,” The government said in a news release. “Once the teacher has notified their designated school official, they should immediately leave the school facility, and the school cleaning and disinfection procedures will take place.”

Teaching staff will keep records of seating arrangements to assist possible contact tracing efforts.

Family members of Samwel Uko are calling for the inquest into his death to be held sooner than later as they continue to seek answers.

Uko died on May 21 after he was twice turned away from the Regina General Hospital for seeking mental health care.

Rescue crews recovered Uko’s body from Wascana Lake, and his family believe his death to be the result of suicide.

The province has confirmed there will be an inquest into Uko’s death, but has not announced the dates. Justin Nyee, Uko’s uncle, said he’s been told the inquest will take place during the summer or fall of 2021.

He said that’s not quick enough.

“We need to know exactly what happened, how did it happen and how is the hospital dealing with all this stuff?” Nyee said. “It’s just going to be dragging on and on for the family. We really need answers, and we need it now.”

Nyee said the province should be stepping up to sign a suicide prevention bill as it continues to be an issue in Saskatchewan. He said an inquiry would present cases like Samwel’s to the public to raise awareness of the problems that exist in the system.

“It shouldn’t be a hard thing to do, that should be a first step,” Nyee said. “Everyone should come together to deal with this, progress it.”

According to the Saskatchewan NDP, 144 people die in the province each year by suicide.

“We cannot continue in this way in Saskatchewan. We’re losing too many of our young people,” NDP leader Ryan Meili said.

Meili said a public inquiry would help create a plan in the province that saves lives.

“We need to have actions taken to identify the root causes of who’s more likely to commit suicide in our province, and work to make sure that people have hope,” Meili said. “We [need to] have early identification when people are struggling so they get the right kind of help before they’re in a crisis. And so that we have the dedicated services available so that when someone’s in a crisis, they go into a place where they’ll get help and not get sent away.”

The Minister of Health Jim Reiter reiterated his apology and said officials met with Uko’s parents, in an email to media on Monday.

“One of the most significant things a government can do in this regard is resources. We significantly increased resources over the past two years in mental health and addictions, to the point now where significantly more than 400 million per year is in mental health and addictions.”

A 24 year-old man has been charged with attempted murder of a girl following a police investigation last weekend.

Regina police said Monday the seven-year-old girl was hospitalized after the incident took place on Saturday.

On that day at 4:26 a.m., police were called to the area of Brotherton Avenue and Cavendish Street, according to a news release.

Police said a taxi driver reported he had come across a young girl whose head was bleeding. There appeared to be no adults accompanying the child.

Police said she was without shoes or a jacket.

The cab driver provided the girl shelter, police said. EMS assisted and drove the child to hospital, where it’s expected she will recover from her injuries.

Further to the investigation, police determined the child lived in the 0-99 block of Cavendish Street.

Officers drove to the residence and located the man, who was trying to leave the home.

Police then arrested and charged the man in connection to the incident.

Police said the man is not a stranger to the girl and is not one of her family members.

It is alleged he was in violation of court order that prohibited him from contacting residents at the address.

Greg Joshua Brittain faces the charge. He appeared in court on Monday.

A natural gas explosion destroyed three row houses in Baltimore on Monday, killing a woman and trapping other people in the wreckage. At least four people were hospitalized with serious injuries as firefighters searched for more survivors.

Dozens of firefighters converged on the piles of rubble. A fourth house in the row was ripped open, and windows were shattered in nearby homes, leaving the Reisterstown Station neighbourhood in northwest Baltimore strewn with debris and glass.

Its a disaster. Its a mess. Its unbelievable, said Diane Glover, who lives across the street. The explosion shattered her windows and blew open her front door, bending the frame. Im still shaken up, she said hours later.

A woman was pronounced dead at the scene, while four of the homes occupants were hospitalized -- including a man who was in critical condition and two other men in serious but stable condition, officials said. Rescuers were painstakingly going through the wreckage by hand. About two hours after the morning explosion, a line of firefighters removed a person on a stretcher to a waiting ambulance.

Baltimore Fire Department spokeswoman Blair Adams said at least five people were inside, maybe more, when the homes exploded.

They were beneath the rubble, Adams said. You have homes that were pretty much crumbled ... A ton of debris on the ground. So, were pulling and trying to comb through to see if we can find any additional occupants.

While the cause wasnt immediately clear, The Baltimore Sun reported last year that dangerous gas leaks have become much more frequent, with nearly two dozen discovered each day on average, according to the utilitys reports to federal authorities. The Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. has thousands of miles of obsolete pipes that need to be replaced, an effort that would cost nearly 1 billion and take two decades, the newspaper said.

We are on the scene and working closely with the fire department to make the situation safe, BGE spokeswoman Linda Foy said, without answering any questions from reporters. Once the gas is off, we can begin to safely assess the situation, including inspections of BGE equipment.

Glover, 56, and her 77-year-old father, Moses Glover, were at home when the massive explosion shook their house, knocking over a fan and some of her DVDs.

I jumped up to see what was going on. I looked out the bathroom window and there was a house on the ground, she said. It sounded like a bomb went off.

Neighbours scrambled toward the rubble, calling out for survivors. Kevin Matthews, who lives on the block, told The Sun that he could hear trapped children shouting: Come get us! Were stuck! Firefighters and police officers then showed up and took over.

Barry Leventhal, whose warehouse equipment business is about 150 feet (46 metres) from the blast site, said he was in his warehouse when the explosion erupted and shook his building, damaging lights and a concrete wall.

Leventhal ran into an office to check on his son-in-law. Fortunately, none of the companys 10 employees was injured.

We thought a plane crashed or something. We couldnt figure it out, said Leventhal, the owner of Everything Warehouse.

BGE asked the Maryland Public Service Commission to approve a new gas system infrastructure and a cost recovery mechanism in late 2017 to pay for upgrades.

Founded in 1816, BGE is the oldest gas distribution company in the nation. Like many older gas systems, a larger portion of its gas main and services infrastructure consists of cast iron and bare steel -- materials that are obsolete and susceptible to failure with age, the PSC wrote in a 2018 order approving a modernization plan.

When aging pipes fail, then tend to make headlines. Last year, a gas explosion ripped the facade off a Maryland office complex in Columbia, affecting more than 20 businesses. No one was injured in the explosion, which happened early on a Sunday morning. In 2016, a gas main break forced the evacuation of the Baltimore County Circuit Courthouse. Under Armour Inc. had to evacuate its Baltimore office after a gas main break in 2012.

Urgent efforts increased in Mauritius on Monday to empty a stranded Japanese ship of an estimated 2,500 tons of oil before the vessel breaks up and increases the contamination of the islands once-pristine Indian Ocean coastline.

Already more than 1,000 tons of fuel has washed up on the eastern coast of Mauritius, polluting its coral reefs, protected lagoons and shoreline.

High winds and waves are pounding the MV Wakashio, which was showing signs of splitting apart and dumping its remaining cargo oil into the waters surrounding Mauritius. The bulk carrier ran aground on a coral reef two weeks ago.

“We are expecting the worst,” Mauritian Wildlife Foundation manager Jean Hugues Gardenne said.

“The ship is showing really big, big cracks. We believe it will break into two at any time, at the maximum within two days,” Gardenne said. “So much oil remains in the ship, so the disaster could become much worse. Its important to remove as much oil as possible. Helicopters are taking out the fuel little by little, ton by ton.”

French experts arrived from the nearby island of Reunion and were deploying booms to try to contain any new oil spill, Gardenne said. France sent a navy ship, military aircraft and technical advisers after Mauritius appealed for international help Friday.

“The booms should be in place within hours, which we hope will help to protect the coastline from further damage,” he said. The booms will boost the improvised barriers that thousands of volunteers in Mauritius created from fabric tubes stuffed with straw and sugar cane leaves.

Amid the rough seas, efforts were also underway to get other ships close enough to pump large amounts of oil out of the MV Wakashio.

“The danger of the ship breaking into two is increasing hour by hour,” environmental consultant Sunil Dowarkasing, a former member of parliament in Mauritius, said. “The cracks have now reached the base of the ship and there is still a lot of fuel on the ship. Two ships are headed to the site so that fuel can be pumped into them, but it is very difficult.”

The ship ran aground on July 25 but work to remove the oil it was carrying only started last week when the hull cracked and started emptying the fuel into the sea, according to Dowarkasing.

The MV Wakashios owner, Nagashiki Shipping, said Monday that two shipss arrived at the scene to pump oil from the endangered vessel. “A hose connection has been successfully established ... and the transfer of fuel oil is underway,” said the company in a statement. It said it is working with Mauritian authorities “to mitigate the spill. The primary focus at this time is reducing the effects of the spill and protecting the environment.”

Pressure is mounting on the government of Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth to explain why it did not take immediate action to avert the environmental disaster. Jugnauth has declared the oil spill a national emergency, but some residents say he acted too late.

The opposition and activists are calling for the resignation of the environment and fisheries ministers. Volunteers have ignored a government order to leave the clean-up operation to local officials.

Japan said Sunday it would send a six-member expert team to assist.

Two men arrested in the area of Torontos Cherry Beach after a fight menaced a number of passersby with running chainsaws before they were captured by police, an eyewitness says.

A jogger who wishes to remain anonymous told CTV News Toronto she was running in the area of Cherry Street, between the beach and Regata Road on Sunday morning, when she says she saw a young boy on rollerblades dart off of the path in front of her.

She then saw two men about two car lengths in front of her, with blood coating their heads, arms and torsos on the path in front of her, reaching for chainsaws.

She said she then hid in some nearby woods.

A short time later she peeked to find both men approaching her, revving the engines on their chainsaws.

She then ran away and called 911.

Toronto police say they arrived at the scene at 9:49 a.m.

Const. Caroline de Kloet said that two males were involved in a fight with a large group of other people and suffered injuries.

They then returned to the scene, carrying weapons.

Police say they arrested both men upon arrival and charged them accordingly.

Officers took a number of witness statements and gathered video evidence on social media.

Mayor John Tory said the city will be keeping an eye on parties taking place at Cherry Beach.

There is a protest that seems to happen weekly at Queen’s Park and it seems, according to the information that has been given to me, a number of the very same people then end up at Cherry Beach having some sort of a gathering, he said during a news conference at city hall on Monday afternoon.

Clearly an incident like this would cause us to want to keep a very careful eye on both these gatherings themselves, because gatherings beyond certain numbers and at certain times... are regulated at this moment in time and also ones that scare or otherwise disturb people, we want to keep an eye on as well.
