The latest news on COVID-19 developments in Canada (all times Eastern):
A case of COVID-19 has been confirmed in a high school in northeastern New Brunswick.
The principal of Sugarloaf High School in Campbellton says the board is working with public health officials to identify any other students or staff who may have had contact with the person.
In a social media post, Michael O’Toole says the school, which is just a few kilometres from the border with Quebec, is temporarily closed to allow for cleaning and contact tracing.
O’Toole says students who live in Listuguj First Nation and Pointe-a-la-Croix on the Quebec side of the border are going to be receiving laptops and other technology to allow them to participate in remote learning.
The province’s public health agency reported three new cases of COVID-19 today, including one in Campbellton involving a person in their 30s.
