January 2022 COVID-19 Isolation Requirement Changes

As we settle back into our daily routines following the Winter Break, we’d like to draw your attention to some changes to the provincial health measures that will have a direct impact on schools. These changes are summarized in the Division’s updated Stay at Home Guide. Please keep your child home if they are ill so we can all do our part to keep our school community healthy, safe and so we can remain open.


As more of the general population becomes fully vaccinated, this will play a factor in how soon your child may return to school following a legally required isolation due to a positive COVID-19 test. Fully vaccinated individuals only need to isolate for 5 days or until symptoms resolve, whichever is longer. PLUS a new measure includes 5 days of wearing a mask at all times when around others at school. We can work with families to help facilitate this upon a student’s return to class. Those partially vaccinated or not vaccinated students remain legally required to isolate for 10 days or until symptoms resolve, whichever is longer, before returning to school.
