The health and safety of all students, staff and school communities is our top priority. In partnership with public health officials, the Near North District School Board (NNDSB) is closely monitoring the current situation with regards to the novel coronavirus.
We understand that many of our families have questions and concerns. Public health officials continue to advise that the risk to the public remains low. As a result, the Ontario Chief Medical Officer of Health and the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit are not advising schools to take any additional precautions.
To reduce exposure to and transmission of a range of illnesses, including coronaviruses, you should follow usual health precautions such as:
- washing your hands often
- avoiding contact with people who are sick
- practicing proper cough and sneeze etiquette
If you have concerns about your or your child’s health, please contact a medical practitioner or North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit. https://www.myhealthunit.ca
