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 2021/2022 school year.
Based on guidance from the Provincial Health Officer, students will not be organized into learning groups when classes start in September. Students will continue to be required to stay home when feeling sick, wash their hands and complete daily health checks. In addition, all K to 12 staff, students in grades 4 to 12 and visitors are required to wear masks in all indoor areas.
