Confirmed Case of COVID-19

November 4, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Hanover School Division has become aware of a confirmed case of COVID-19 in an individual at Niverville Elementary School. Public disclosure of identifying information (grade, cohort, or class) is at the discretion of Public Health and will not be released by Hanover School Division.

Within 24 hours of a confirmed COVID-19 laboratory test, Public Health begins an investigation to identify individuals who may have been exposed. Public Health has access to enrollment information such as school class lists and contact information for parents/guardians and staff. Anyone identified as a close contact of the confirmed case will be contacted directly by Public Health and provided instructions regarding self-isolation and COVID-19 testing.

Hanover School Division is working in collaboration with Public Health. If you have not been contacted directly by Public Health or the school, your children can continue to attend Niverville Elementary School. The school remains open.

The school’s affected areas will be cleaned, disinfected, and sanitized using our sanitization sprayer. Please be assured that HSD is working closely with Public Health to ensure necessary measures continue to be in place to protect all students and staff.

An official letter from Public Health is forthcoming and will be sent to all NES parents/guardians; however, we wanted to provide you with advance notification.
