Working together to keep students, teachers, and our communities safe.

We have been working closely with public and independent schools to support safety plans and communications strategies around COVID-19 in schools. Fraser Health will continue case and contact management for all positive cases of COVID-19 in schools during the summer months.

The current public health guidance is in place through the summer. Planning has begun for the 2021/22 school year with updated guidance expected in August 2021.

Children and young people ages 12 to 17 are now eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine. More information is available on BCCDC's website.
