NOVEL CORONAVIRUS – UPDATE FROM FISA

Recognizing the safety and health of all members of our school communities is a primary concern. Updated and accurate information on potential threats, such as the Novel Coronavirus, are extremely important.

As mentioned in the recent Deputy Minister’s Bulletin, the Provincial Health Officer (PHO) and the Ministry of Health (MoH) are advising that the risk to the general public, including school-age children, from the Coronavirus is very low. The PHO and the MoH will continue to communicate with school authorities and provide updates as required.
