Change to provincial screening tool re: travel
We want to let students and families know that a change has been made to the provincial COVID-19 school screening tool.
The key change aligns the provincial screening tool with the federal guidance for returning travelers that went into effect on February 28, 2022.
Unvaccinated children under the age of 12 who are accompanied by a fully vaccinated traveler can return to school upon their return. Unvaccinated travelers aged 12 to 17 do not qualify as fully vaccinated travelers. These children would be expected to follow all testing and quarantine requirements for unvaccinated travelers.
Daily screening for COVID-19 symptoms and staying home if you are sick remain important ways to reduce the spread of the virus. Thank you for continuing to complete this daily for each child using the updated provincial screening tool.
