Covid-19 Update - March 13th, 2020 - School Closure Information

FREDERICTON (GNB) – The all-party cabinet committee has met and agreed to close New Brunswick public schools. Effective Monday, March 16, all schools across the province will be closed for two weeks. This is in response to the COVID-19 situation. This closure will be reassessed on an ongoing basis.

This was the first meeting of the all-party cabinet committee, with the collective goal of minimizing the spread of COVID-19.
At this time, early learning and child-care facilities, including those located in schools, are not being closed. The directive continues to be that all individuals who have travelled internationally on or after March 9 still applies. Those travellers are to avoid early learning and childcare centres for a period of 14 days.
Individuals with question relating to schools and early learning and child-care facilities may call 1-844-288-3888.
