Effective February 22, 2021, under the direction of the Ministry of Education, staff and students are required to stay home from school or child care if anyone in their household develops a single symptom of COVID-19.

Return to School

If the symptomatic individual tests negative for COVID-19 or receives an alternative diagnosis by a health care professional:

  • the symptomatic individual and all other household contacts can return to school

If the symptomatic individual tests positive or does not get tested for COVID-19:

  • the symptomatic individual must isolate (including from household members) for 10 days from symptom onset
  • all other household contacts must isolate for 14 days from their last contact with the symptomatic individual

Please remember to complete the Ontario COVID-19 School Screening tool for symptoms before attending school.
