DDSB messages call to students, staff to wear masks

Durham District School Board (DDSB) yesterday sent a message to families of students regarding the Durham Region Health Department’s strong recommendation that students and staff wear masks in shared indoor spaces.

“We are writing to share with you the news that due to the Omicron surges (BA.1.1 and BA.2 sub-variants), the Durham Region Health Department strongly recommends that students and staff wear a well-fitted three-layer mask in shared indoor spaces,” said the message.

Please read the attached message from Durham Region’s Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Robert Kyle with this updated guidance. DRHD Message.

The message pointed out that masking, coupled with other public health measures such as physical distancing, proper hand hygiene, and staying home when sick, continue to be effective strategies for reducing the spread of Covid-19. We ask that everyone attending school continue to self-screen every day by using the Ontario school screener at: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening/.

“By working together and following the guidance of the Durham Region Health Department, we can help reduce the spread of Covid-19 in our community,” it added.
