February 23, 2015 - Meningitis Information
Many of you would have heard in the news that Acadia has been dealing with two cases of bacterial meningitis at the University. One of the cases resulted in a tragic loss of one of their students. Our thoughts are with them at this most difficult time. Public Health, with the assistance of Acadia University, is continuing efforts to ensure the well being of the campus community.
Dr. Robert Strang, Acting Regional Medical Officer of Health in the attached letter says, "This illness is not spread through the air, environmental surfaces or casual exposure such as sitting next to someone, taking a class with someone, working out in the same gym or simply being on Acadia Campus. Therefore, activities on Acadia campus will continue as normal and there is no reason for community members to avoid the campus."
Wolfville School will continue to function as per usual in regards to programs at Acadia and involving Acadia students. Students will continue to participate in the SMILE program, enrichment at Acadia and student volunteers are still present and welcome in our School.
