COVID-19 Protocols

Manitoba Education has provided the following general guidance for schools (see COVID-19 Guidance and Planning for Schools):
The health, safety, and well-being of students and staff remain a top priority. Public health updates can be found at COVID-19 Information for Manitobans. Schools are asked to review existing emergency plans and be ready to implement changing measures as well as follow preventive measures as much as possible:
  • monitor daily for signs and symptoms of COVID-19
  • stay home when sick
  • frequent hand washing with easy access to hand hygiene products
  • practice respiratory etiquette (i.e. covering coughs and sneezes)
  • ventilation improvements, routine cleaning and disinfection protocols with a focus on high-touch surfaces and common areas including washrooms
  • encourage vaccinations (COVID-19 and routine immunizations)
  • respect individual choice regarding mask use, and have masks and rapid antigen tests available for staff and students if needed
  • have plans in place for when students become ill at school and if there are high cases of respiratory illness
