Today we learned that individuals at Carrie Downie were diagnosed with COVID and, in the following protocol, anyone who came into close contact with these individuals are being notified.

Out of an abundance of caution and because the cases involved key personnel that impacts our ability to run the building, all Carrie Downie staff and students have been dismissed early today.

Again, all who are deemed to be in close contact are being notified by the Division of Public Health.

As always, we will communicate further updates and details as soon as possible via our website and social media accounts.
