The Ministry of Education has advised school districts that all K-12 staff and all students in Grades 4-12 are required to wear a mask while indoors at school, including when they are at their desks or workstations. Kindergarten to Grade 3 students are strongly encouraged to do so, as well. Should you wish to view the updated guidance and exemptions from the BC Centre for Disease Control you can find it here.
These changes do not replace what we must each continue to do: maximize physical distance (even when outside), wash hands frequently, do the Daily Health Check (found here), and stay home when sick.
Additional detailed information about mask requirements can be found in the Burnaby School District – Stage 2 Return to School Health and Safety Handbook COVID-19, which is regularly updated with the latest guidance from the BCCDC.
