SCHOOL EXPOSURES

A number of schools in New Brunswick are closed Thursday due to COVID-19.

Leo Hayes High School in Fredericton is closed after two positive cases of COVID-19 were identified. Online learning will take place.

One positive case has been identified at Nashwaaksis Middle School, also in Fredericton, meaning it’s closed Thursday for cleaning and contact tracing. It will reopen Friday.

There’s also been a possible exposure to COVID-19 at New Maryland Elementary in New Maryland, N.B. Children there can still go to school unless they’re contacted by public health.

The notices were posted by the school board late Wednesday night.
