Public Health has confirmed that a person connected to New Germany Rural High School has tested positive for COVID-19. Access the Public Health notification letter here.
The school and the region are working closely with Public Health.
If your child is identified as a close contact, Public Health will communicate with you directly. If Public Health does not contact you, it is because your child is not considered a close contact. However, out of an abundance of caution, Public Health is recommending that all students and staff at New Germany Rural High School be tested for COVID-19, whether or not they have symptoms.
The school will receive a deep cleaning over the weekend and will reopen to staff on Monday. Staff continue to have the option to work from home and those who are identified as close contacts will need to work from home. At-home learning will go ahead as scheduled next week.
