Quarantines in schools and early childhood education

Due to the worsening of the epidemic, the Infectious Diseases Unit will not keep track of exposures at day care units and schools or impose quarantines based on exposures in class.

Due to the worsening of the epidemic, health care units do not have enough coronavirus tests to meet the current needs. For this reason, the Infectious Diseases Unit will not keep track of exposures at day care units and schools or impose quarantines based on exposures in class. Therefore, it is especially important that a child or young person with even the mildest of symptoms remain at home until it is confirmed that they do not have a coronavirus infection.  

We ask guardians to inform the school of their child’s coronavirus infection.

Other guardians and staff are informed through Wilma that there has been an exposure situation at school. The exact location or time of exposure will not be disclosed to protect the privacy of the children and adults.
