Public Health Nurse Support for Schools: Fall 2020
Halton Region Public Health staff have been working closely with local schools across the region for several years, through various programs, to improve the health and well-being of students and staff. The Ministry of Health recently announced additional public health nursing support to assist schools with managing COVID-19. We are currently planning our approach to the Ministry’s announcement and will ensure the schools are aware of any additional supports.
As we kick off the 2020/21 school year, the Region's public health nurses will be focused on:
- supports to school board/private school plans related to school reopening during the pandemic;
- learning supports for children, educators and their families related to preventing the spread of COVID-19 (infection prevention and control measures); and
- managing positive cases and potential outbreaks in school settings.
All schools continue to have access to school health information, resources and consultation. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 311.
