The high school in Garden Hill First Nation, a remote fly-in community in northeastern Manitoba, has been closed for weeks due to widespread mould, and it’s unclear when it could reopen, officials say.

At least one student was confirmed to be affected by the mould which, along with rust that is affecting the main beams, is spread throughout the building, Knott said.
