The NBPCU and our members continue to work to address the health and safety concerns of our community while ensuring the continuity of learning. The following is a statement by the Government of Canada:
The outbreak of COVID-19, the illness caused by the novel corona-virus originating in Wuhan, China, is a significant challenge for the entire world.
The Government of Canada has created the infrastructure to respond to the public health threats of the virus, and is well prepared to act—in collaboration with provincial and territorial governments and international partners—to minimize the health, economic, and social impacts of this rapidly evolving public health issue.
Canada's response is based on plans and guidance related to pandemic preparedness.
We encourage everyone to take necessary precautions as we work through this situation.
