Covid 19 Update (Effective April 16)

Daily update on Covid 19

This document was developed by the Ministry of Education in collaboration with the BC Centre for Disease Control, Indigenous rightsholders and education partners – including teachers, parents and school leaders – to outline requirements and recommended measures for K-12 school communicable disease prevention plans. These comprehensive guidelines build on the Public Health Communicable Disease Guidance for K-12 Schools developed by the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC).

WorkSafeBC guidance for workplaces should be used to determine what measures should be in place for non-school spaces operated by a school district or independent school authority (e.g. board/authority offices, maintenance facilities, etc.).

Guiding principles of the K-12 sector response, as well as additional guidance regarding students from First Nations communities, and students and parents/caregivers with immune compromise or medical complexity is available in the K-12 Education Recovery Plan. To view the document, click here.
