A school in Moncton has closed for another day after it reported a second case of COVID-19.
Edith Cavell School on Park Street, for students in kindergarten to Grade 8, announced the case on Twitter and through an email to parents Wednesday night.
The school said it’s working with Public Health to identify any other students or staff that may have been in contact with the positive cases.
The school is closed Thursday and students will learn from home.
“We understand you may feel anxious over the coming days,” the school said in an email to parents.
“Public Health officials will contact you if your child has been in close contact with the confirmed case and will tell you if your child needs to self-isolate.”
Edith Cavell was one of two schools to confirm COVID-19 cases Wednesday.
The Anglophone East School district announced the school’s first positive case in a tweet.
Polyvalente-A.-M. Sormany High School in Edmundston also reported a positive case of COVID-19, but it remains open.
Several schools asked students and staff to self-isolate over the weekend, as they reported cases.
Académie Notre-Dame in Dalhousie in Campbellton reported a case.
One case was reported at Townsview School and three cases were confirmed at Woodstock High School last Saturday.
Garderie Tic Tac Toe, a Dalhousie daycare centre, also reported one case.
