CoronaVirus Update

As you know, a new illness called novel coronavirus has been spreading in areas of southeast Asia, originating in Wuhan, China. Our partners at KFL&A Public Health are closely monitoring the situation and actively working with our local, provincial and federal partners to ensure the continued safety and well-being of the public.


Right now, public health recommends members of the public take the usual precautions to reduce the risk of transmission of the flu and respiratory illnesses. These messages are outlined in a letter from public health that is now posted to the Board website (along with a link to a letter from the Chief Medical Officer of Health for Ontario. This will also be shared on social media, and will be sent home to families via the Communicate Broadcast tool (this will be sent at the end of the day January 29, 2020). This will be sent centrally by the Communications department.

A copy of the letters are attached, for your information
