Lifting of Covid Restrictions

Based on advice from the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health (OCMOH), and the Ministry of Education, the province is restoring schools to align with community measures in place, while maintaining protective measures like rapid tests, ventilation improvements, enhanced cleaning, and screening.

Effective March 21st, masks will no longer be required for students, staff and visitors in schools, school board offices and on student transportation. We know that many students and staff may choose to continue to wear masks at times, or consistently for the remainder of the school year. Masks will continue to be provided for those who need them.

Daily on-site confirmation of screening for all students and staff will no longer be required. Updates have been made to the provincial screening tool including new isolation requirements depending on vaccination status. Staff and students should continue to self-screen every day before attending school using the COVID-19 school screening tool.

Students and their families can find an inclusive list of mental health supports, resources, and links to our community mental health partners on the CDSBEO website at: CDSBEO Student/Parent Mental Health Resources. We encourage our families to explore these resources and seek out support when needed.

The CDSBEO has sent out an email to all families containing more details and information regarding the lifting of restrictions. This information can also be found on CDSBEO's website at this link:
