Certain Westberry families have been alerted that a COVID-19 case has been detected in the school.

Currently, one classroom is thought to have been exposed. The entire class is being considered a ‘close contact’ and have been asked to isolate, only leaving to attend classes. Students are asked forgo all extracurricular activities in and around the community.

At this time, children under 12 years are not eligible to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in Canada. Recent news on clinical trials in this age group is encouraging, and the province will move quickly to provide COVID-19 vaccine to additional age groups as soon as any vaccine receives Health Canada approvals.

Until that approval is granted, our best defense of pediatric COVID cases is to increase vaccination rates among all eligible residents.
