Acwsalcta School has its first case of COVID-19. In a public letter written by the Nuxalk Acwsalcmalslayc Academy of Learning (NAALS) the Board of Directors said the school, daycare, and college would be closed from Nov. 30 – Dec. 18.

VCH also said that, “Public Health is working closely with the school to identify any close contacts among staff or students. Anyone identified as a close contact will be notified directly by public health and asked to isolate for 14 days from their last date of possible exposure.

“If you do not receive a call from public health, your risk of exposure is considered to be very low and we do not recommend that you isolate at this time.”
