COVID-19 Update for Parents/Guardians
With COVID-19 cases and key trends remaining low in our community, Hamilton Public Health Services is cautiously lifting the requirement to confirm the completion of daily screening in schools through the attestation calendar. While self-screening prior to the start of the school day continues to be required, schools are no longer required to verify screening for students through the attestation calendar. Other public health measures continue to be important in preventing the spread of COVID-19 in our schools.
*Parents/guardians must continue to screen their children daily for symptoms of COVID-19 using the school and childcare screening tool.
Hamilton Public Health Services will continue monitoring local case activity and may introduce additional measures or remove them as appropriate. We anticipate that upon return from the December holiday period, schools may be asked again to temporarily verify daily screening. Details will be shared closer to that date.
Thank you for your continued diligence and support to keep everyone safe at Chedoke! 😊
