Further to yesterday’s PHO announcement and Deputy Minister’s bulletin, BCCDC Public Health Guidance for K-12 Schools and the Provincial COVID-19 Health and Safety Guidelines for K-12 Settings have been updated to reflect the amended mask requirements for K-12 staff and students. Changes have been highlighted and include revised guidance for Staff Only Spaces, Student Transportation on Buses, Personal Protective Equipment (with updated exemptions), PHE, music classes, school sports and theatre/film/dance programs. School districts should familiarize themselves with these updates and communicate on these changes with staff, students and families.

Please look at the attachments for details.

Sincerely,
D. Scott MacDonald
