Coronavirus

We received a letter recently from the Ontario Ministry of Health, sent to all schools in the province, in response to questions they had received about the new coronavirus. They are monitoring the spread of the virus globally, and specifically any cases that reach Ontario, and they see no reason for alarm. At this point, they are only advising the usual precautions to avoid spreading seasonal viruses. For more information, see the latest from the Province of Ontario here >>.
