Good Afternoon Parents & Guardians,
Any Islanders who have traveled to the provinces of Nova Scotia or New Brunswick within the last week (since November 16), are being advised to follow the following Public Health Guidance:
Closely monitor for symptoms
Wear a mask or face covering at all times (including outdoors)
Limit your contacts
Practice good hand hygiene
Physically distance when possible
Download the COVID alert app
Dr. Morrison has indicated that students who have traveled to the areas listed above should continue to attend school while following the enhanced Public Health Guidance listed above.
In addition, for students who have traveled to NS or NB within the last week, they should not be participating in organized activities outside the regular school day for 14 days from the date of return.
This would include community based activities as well as any before or after school activities, such as school basketball teams, after school tutoring, before school band practice, before/after school clubs, etc. We would ask that students not be penalized if they are required to follow this Public Health Guidance.
If you haven’t already done so, please let the school know if your child has traveled to Nova Scotia or New Brunswick since November 16.
Anyone experiencing symptoms should immediately visit a drop-in testing clinic to be tested, and self-isolate. princeedwardisland.ca/covidtesting
