Public Health Guidance for K-12 Schools

Attending school in person is important for a student’s education and well-being. Every school in B.C. has an approved COVID-19 health and safety plan, based on the Public Health Guidance for K-12 Schools. This plan details what a school must do to safely operate. It also outlines the things staff, students and families can do to help. Together, these measures help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in schools.
