Potential Impacts of COVID-19 on Student Travel Abroad
The provincial Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development Brian Warr said in a statement that the government is closely monitoring the emerging, rapidly evolving situation, related to the COVID-19 virus along with the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District (NLESD).
During the spring, many students travel abroad through school organized tours. Additional consideration is being given to upcoming travel plans.
There is no international travel planned for students with Conseil scolaire francophone provincial de Terre-Neuve-et-Labrador.
The NLESD has taken steps to cancel two tours planned for Northern Italy based on the information and a recommendation from the Public Health Agency of Canada which has listed the region as a risk level 3 (Avoid non-essential travel).
