Working together to keep our schools safe
Public Health is reminding everyone to continue following safety measures.
Public Health recently put in place additional precautionary measures in an attempt to slow down the spread of COVID -19 VARIANTS. If you are (or your child) asked to self-isolate following a moderate risk contact with a suspected case of a COVID-19 variant, please be reminded that Public Health strongly recommends that you (or your child) get tested twice during the isolation period. Moreover, all household members are asked to self-isolate while waiting for the first screening test result and this, even if you (or your child) do not show symptoms.
If we diligently focus our efforts, rigorously follow safety principles and avoid gatherings and crowded places, we will contribute to keeping our schools safe.
Every day, before you leave home...
- Check your symptoms or your child’s symptoms
While at school...
- Wash your hands frequently
- Keep your distances
- Wear your medical mask or proper protective equipment, as required
- Clean and sanitize surfaces
- Monitor your health
