The government has released the Operational Guidance: COVID-19 Management in Schools as part of our plan to help students and teachers to safely return to the classroom.
This guide was developed in consultation with public health experts, including Ontario's Chief Medical Officer of Health, and aims to help schools identify and isolate COVID-19 cases, reduce the spread of COVID-19 in schools, and prevent and minimize outbreaks. Premier Ford and Minister Lecce also announced that Dr. Dirk Huyer will serve as Coordinator, Provincial Outbreak Response. Dr. Huyer will lead the province's efforts to prevent and minimize COVID-19 outbreaks in a number of sectors, including the education, child care, agriculture and health care sectors.
