Mask Guidelines

Mask guidelines are now available and provide details about mask use in our schools and workplaces, including information about the times and locations masks must be worn, when mask breaks can occur and who may be exempted from wearing masks.

Masks will not be necessary for students in K-3 when they are working within their cohort (group) of students in their classroom and when the integrity of cohort can be maintained.

For Grades 4-12, masks will not be needed when students are seated within their cohort(s) and physical distancing is achieved.

When staff are working with students with special needs where wearing a face covering would impact learning, a mask can be removed.

Teachers will also build in time during the day to take breaks. Masks will not need to be worn during recess, physical activity or when eating or drinking.

During breaks, it will be important to follow other precautionary measures like physical distancing and hand hygiene.
