Positive Covid-19 Case At NES

November 19, 2021

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Today we were informed of a positive Covid-19 case at Nackawic Elementary School. We have been in contact with Public Health officials to identify the students and school personnel who may have been in contact with the case.

Anyone identified as a close contact has received a letter from Public Health with specific instructions on what to do next. The letter was sent by the school principal earlier this evening.

All students should plan to attend school on Monday, November 22, unless they are self-isolating.

It is natural to want to know if your child may have been exposed to the virus but to protect the privacy of students and school personnel, details, such as names, will not be released.

Children and young people look to the adults in their lives to guide them on how to react to worrying and stressful events. Parents are encouraged to talk to their children about any anxieties and remind them to treat one another with kindness and respect, in person and on social media.

If your child is showing any symptoms of Covid-19, you should:

  1. Register them online for a test by clicking “Get tested” on the GNB coronavirus website (www.gnb.ca/coronavirus). OR
  2. Contact Tele-Care 811. The 811 operators will evaluate your child before sending them for testing.

If you have health-related questions, please write to COVID-19NB@gnb.ca

Thank you for your continued support as we respond to the pandemic.


Jay Colpitts, Director of Schools for Covid-19 Response​
