It’s hard to believe we have reached the three week mark of the resumption of school! Once again, I’d like to send a thank you for all your support, patience and cooperation with the implementation of health protocols to create safe learning spaces in our schools.
Please find attached some further information, which I trust will be helpful for all. The two-page printable document outlines the symptomatic criteria for students being sent home from school and the steps for their return to school after COVID-19 testing or period of isolation.
If you have additional health-related questions, please visit the provincial COVID-19 Screening Tool on the Shared Health website or call Health Links-Info Santé (204-788-8200 or toll-free 1-888-315-9257).
On September 18, 2020, the province issued further guidance on mask-wearing limitations and school accommodations. The new document provides updated guidance from public health officials specific to schools.
For more information on Manitoba Education’s COVID-19 response, including regularly updated Frequently Asked Questions, please visit the Government of Manitoba Website.
