*************************
Nova Scotia is reporting an additional case of COVID-19, identified today, April 18, connected to St. Joseph's-Alexander McKay Elementary School in Central Zone.

The school will remain closed to students until Thursday, April 22. A deep cleaning will take place and students will learn from home during the closure. Families will receive an update before students return to school on Thursday.

As with any positive case, public health will be in touch with any close contacts of this case 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. No self-isolation is required, unless people have been identified as a close contact by public health or have symptoms.
