CONFIRMED CASE OF COVID-19 AT NEW MARYLAND ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Dear Families of New Maryland Elementary School,
This is to inform you that a positive
case of COVID-19 has been confirmed at New Maryland Elementary School.
We are working with Public Health
officials to identify any students and school personnel who may have been in
contact with the virus. To protect the privacy of students and school
personnel, details, including names of those affected, will not be released.
At this time, we ask you to model
calmness, kindness and respect, in order to keep anxieties down. Children and
young people look to adults in their lives to guide them on how to react to
worrying and stressful events.
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 and is welcome to return tomorrow, January 12. If
you have been contacted by Public Health, please follow their instructions
If your child is showing any symptoms of
COVID-19, you should:
- Register them online for a test
by clicking "Get Started" on the GNB Corona Virus website (www.gnb.ca/coronavirus) or,
- Call Tele-Care 811 or,
your primary care provider.
To reach the Fredericton and Upper River Valley
Public Health general inquiry line, please call (506) 325-4621 or 453-3071
between 8:30am – 4:30pm.
We will continue to communicate updates to you
through School Messenger and our website.
Thank you for helping keep our
school, community, and province safe.
