September 2022 – Wellness Screening and Updated Guidance
The provincial government has updated the screener and guidance regarding COVID-19 for the start of the 2022-2023 school year. Children and Staff should continue screen using the Provincial Screening Tool every day prior to their arrival at the childcare program. We do not require you to verify the screening, however we will continue to monitor all children throughout the day for signs and symptoms of illness. The updated guidance also removes the Isolation period for COVID-19, however a reminder that children should stay at home when they are unwell. A child with any symptoms of illness shall not return until they are fever free and have improving symptoms for 24 hours, 48 hours for gastrointestinal symptoms. This is really important as the individual is to return following illess wearing a well-fitted mask for 10 days. We understand that this is not possible for our youngest learners. We appreciate your ongoing comittment to healthy spaces! Stay well everyone!!
