Public Health Guidance for K-12 Schools

Updated for the 2021-22 school year, the Public Health Guidance for K-12 Schools outlines the prevention measures recommended to reduce the risk of communicable diseases including COVID-19. Schools continue to be considered low-risk settings for COVID-19 transmission, particularly in the context of a highly immunized population. While schools will look closer-to-normal in September, we’re not back to normal just yet.  

Every school in B.C. has a communicable disease plan that details what they must do to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The plan includes multiple layers of protection.
