Update Regarding Wuhan novel coronavirus

As you may be aware, the number of cases of the Wuhan novel coronavirus has been increasing, and there are now some presumptive cases in Ontario.


Ontario’s Ministry of Health has distributed a letter to school boards and created a special website with information about the Wuhan novel coronavirus, including how to protect yourself, recognizing possible symptoms, and what to do if you feel sick.


This is a good reminder for all of us to follow some best practices for the cold and flu season, such as:

  • washing your hands often
  • avoiding contact with people who are sick
  • practicing proper cough and sneeze etiquette
  • staying home if you or your child is sick


We will continue to work with the Ministry of Health and our local health units, and provide updates as necessary.
