January 12 - Minister Lecce and Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health announced the launch of school-based vaccine clinics for youth and staff, along with a significant deployment of rapid antigen tests, while confirming that all students in Ontario will return to in-person learning on Monday, January 17, 2022.
These new measures build on the province providing millions of high-quality masks for staff and students and thousands more HEPA filtration units.
The reopening of schools is supported by Chief Medical Officer of Health, all Medical Officers of Health, and the Children’s Health Coalition, because we know how critical schools are to mental and physical health, social development, and the academic success of students. Ontario’s plan includes additional enhanced measures, including the launch of a targeted booster campaign for education and childcare staff and millions of rapid tests to schools.
With these measures in place, including new testing options and expanded access to vaccination, and continuous improvement to ventilation, Premier Ford and the government is supporting safe in-person learning with greater stability for students and families.
Ontario government is providing targeted relief for businesses and people impacted by the current public health measures aimed at blunting the spread of the Omicron variant. The Ontario COVID-19 Small Business Relief Grant for small businesses that are subject to closure under the modified Step Two of the Roadmap to Reopen will provide eligible small businesses with a grant payment of $10,000.
