Chief Public Health Officer, Dr. Heather Morrison, has identified 2 positive COVID-19 cases impacting Westwood Primary School. To allow for contract tracing and testing, Westwood Primary School will be closed Thursday and Friday (Dec 9 & 10). Further direction will be provided over the weekend about the school reopening. This is not considered an outbreak at this time. The closure will give public health time to determine if there has been any transmission within the school.
Classmates and seatmates who travelled on the bus with the students are considered close contacts. CPHO will be sending out further guidance to close contacts by email to advise on testing and isolation requirements.
Other students and staff at Westwood Primary who are not contacted by public health should monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 and if any develop, visit a drop-in testing clinic and isolate until a negative result is received.
Public health measures are in place to prevent the impact of COVID-19. We can protect ourselves and our community by getting vaccinated if eligible, screening for symptoms, good hand hygiene, staying home when ill, physical distancing wherever possible and following masking guidelines.
Learning to live with COVID-19 can cause feelings of uncertainty, stress and anxiety. It is important for all of us to be mindful of how we are feeling. For staff who have concerns about returning to school, please contact your principal. Parents and students who have concerns with returning to school should call the PSB at 1-800-280-7965 (toll-free) or 902-368-6990.
