Health Unit to publish safe back to school document

The North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit will be publishing a safer return to school document on their website.

The document slated to be released on August 25th will be called ‘COVID-19 and School Reopening – Public Health Information for Families’ and will be a well of knowledge that the unit has written up after working diligently with local school boards to support a safer return to school. The Health Unit says that the document will help answer many questions parents and guardians may have as they prepare their children to re-enter the classroom.

“The Health Unit wishes to congratulate and thank all of you for your cooperation and sacrifices that have helped to prevent our loved ones, friends, and neighbours from becoming ill with COVID-19,” said Health Unit Public Relations Specialist Alex McDermid. “Your efforts have resulted in reducing the spread of this virus throughout our district. While we continue to experience very low levels of disease, it is not the time to become unconcerned. Keeping the levels of COVID-19 low within our communities will significantly help to reduce the risk to our children and make the return-to-school safer and successful for all.”

The Health Unit encourages everyone to remain ‘COVID Kind’ and continue to support each other through these unprecedented times. They ask for us to continue to “follow public health measures including physical distancing, wearing a face covering, washing, or sanitizing hands often, coughing or sneezing into your sleeve.”
