COVID-19 - Schools and Related Settings

PHO works closely with the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education and local public health units and provides scientific and technical advice to support developing and implementing policies, programs and services to prevent COVID-19 in schools and other related settings including childcare and day and overnight camps.

PHO also develops a variety of resources for staff and administrators to support COVID-19 prevention and control. These resources are complementary to the support and resources provided by local public health units and the Government of Ontario.

Questions About Schools Re-opening
