In addition, for students who have traveled to NS or NB within the last week, they should not be participating in organized activities outside the regular school day for 14 days from the date of return. This would include community based activities as well as any before or after school activities, such as school basketball teams, after school tutoring, before school band practice, before/after school clubs, etc. Students will not be penalized if they are required to follow this Public Health Guidance.
