Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
As you’ve likely heard, the spread of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a health concern that is both evolving and being closely monitored by many organizations across the world. In fact, on March 11th, the WHO officially declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic.
At the level of the school district, we’re working alongside Fraser Health, the BC Centre of Disease Control and the Office of the Provincial Health Officer to both stay informed and to take direction from them on the issue.
Please be sure to follow the Provincial Health Officer’s request that all those traveling outside of Canada remain at home and not attend school or work for 14 days following their return to Canada.
