NEWS RELEASE
COVID-19/EDUCATION/EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT
*************************
Nova Scotia is reporting one COVID-19 case today, June 24, connected to St. Joseph's-Alexander McKay Elementary in Central Zone.

The school will be closed to allow for testing of close contacts and a deep cleaning of the building. Families and staff will receive information from the school about next week's schedule.

Public health will be in touch with any close contacts of positive cases and advise of next steps, including testing. Everyone who is a close contact will be notified, tested and asked to self-isolate for 14 days.

Out of an abundance of caution, public health is recommending that all students and staff be tested for COVID-19, whether or not they have symptoms. No self-isolation is required while they wait for test results unless they have been identified as a close contact by public health or have symptoms.
