Public Health has confirmed a case of COVID-19 connected to a Halifax high school and work is underway to notify any close contacts.

The principal of Citadel High School sent a letter to families Tuesday evening explaining the situation.

"Public Health is confident the school remains a safe place for students and staff, and our school will remain open," Joe Morrison said.

Morrison said further details, including names, will not be released to protect the privacy of students and staff.

Anyone not contacted is not considered a close contact.
