Re: POSITIVE COVID-19 CASE AT CALEDONIA
REGIONAL HIGH SCHOOL
This is to
inform of a positive COVID-19 case in our school. We are working with Public
Health officials to identify any students and school personnel who may have
been in contact with the case.
We understand you may feel anxious over the
coming days. Public Health officials
will contact you if your child has been in close contact with the confirmed
case and will tell you if your child needs to self-isolate. If you are not
contacted by Public Health officials, your child can continue to attend school.
It is natural to want to know if your child may
have been exposed to the virus. Public Health officials will inform those who
are at risk of the next steps, but to protect the privacy of students and
school personnel, other details including names, will not be released.
Children and young people look to the
adults in their lives to guide them on how to react to worrying and stressful
events. Parents are encouraged to talk to their children about any anxieties
and remind them to treat one another with kindness and respect, in person and
on social media.
If your child is showing any symptoms of COVID-19, you
Register them online for a test by clicking “Get
tested” on the GNB corona virus website (www.gnb.ca/coronavirus), or
Contact Tele-Care 811, or
Contact your primary care provider.
The 811 operators or your primary care provider will
evaluate your child before sending them for testing.
Thank you for helping keep our school, community,
and province safe.
Caledonia will be closed on Monday, January 18th, 2021 to allow Public Health to complete contact tracing.
