Hey Townsview families!

As we return to school tomorrow...a friendly reminder that we are asking that your child pack extra masks to wear throughout the day! As our Zone is currently in the Red Recovery Phase, masks are to be work all day with a few exceptions...this creates more of an opportunity for the masks to become wet, soiled, etc. If possible, please send at least 2 masks with your child/children.

Also if you have not done so, please ensure that your child returns any electronic devices that were sent home and used during our temporary shut down. Please include the charger as well and return to your Homeroom teacher as soon as possible!

Please remember that if your child/children are experiencing 1 symptom of COVID-19 to keep them home and contact 811 to speak to Public Health.

Thanks again for sharing positivity and continuing to be supportive during these challenging times!

🖤💛 Townsview Home & School Committee

Confirmed cases in schools

Regarding all cases identified at schools, if you or a family member have been in close contact with a case, you will be notified by Public Health for contact tracing. If you do not hear directly from Public Health, you have not been identified as a close contact.

Zone 1 (Moncton region) – A positive case of COVID-19 has been confirmed at Riverview High School in Riverview and the school community has been notified. As the school is located in Zone 1, which is in the Red level, the school will be closed for three days for contact tracing and testing of school staff.

Zone 4 (Edmundston region) – Students at École Élémentaire Sacré-Cœur, in Grand Falls, and École Régionale Saint-Basile, in Edmundston, will continue to learn from home this week due to operational pressures as testing continues to be carried out on school staff. They will return to school on Monday, Jan. 25.

Outbreak at adult residential facility in Zone 4

Public Health has declared an outbreak at Le Pavillon Le Royer, a special care home in Edmundston, in Zone 4.

Following a confirmed case of COVID-19 on Wednesday, Jan. 20, Public Health started an investigation at the facility. Members of the Provincial Rapid Outbreak Management Team are on site providing support for residents and for the facility’s care and management team.

Exposure notification

Public Health follows a standard process when addressing instances where the public may have been exposed to a case of COVID-19. In cases where record-keeping is able to identify anyone who may have been exposed, officials contact these individuals directly and do not issue a separate announcement. In cases where officials cannot be certain of exactly who may have been exposed to the virus in a given location, Public Health issues an announcement to alert those who could have been affected and provides instructions.

Public Health has identified potential public exposure to the virus at the following location in Zone 4:

Sparta Progression Gym on Jan. 13 and Jan. 15 between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. (113, 44 Avenue D, Edmundston).
Reminder of Red and Orange level rules

Zones 1, 2, 3 and 4 remain at the Red level under the province’s COVID-19 recovery plan. Zones 5, 6 and 7 remain at the Orange level.
