Global self-isolation over for students and staff of Townsview and Woodstock

Article Posted: Sunday, January 10, 2021

Hello Families of Woodstock High School and Townsview School,

This is to inform you that Public Health is lifting the global self-isolation requirements for Saturday January 9th and Sunday January 10th, effective immediately.

Some students and school personnel have been contacted individually by Public Health and are required to self-isolate.  These students and school personnel must continue to follow the directives that were given to them. 

We would like to thank you for your cooperation this weekend.  This has allowed the Public Health team to do contact tracing and help keep our communities safe. 

It is natural to want to know if you or your child have been exposed to the virus. Public Health officials have informed those who are at risk of the next steps. If you have not been contacted, you no longer have to self-isolate.

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 you or your child is showing any symptoms of COVID-19, you should:

  1. Register them online for a test by clicking “Get tested” on the GNB corona virus website (, or
  2. Contact Tele-Care 811, or
  3. 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.  I wish you all the best this week in your remote learning experience.


David McTimoney - Superintendent​
