“We want to support families as they consider the decision to send their child or children back to school in September.” Says Grey Bruce Top Doc, Ian Arra. “Returning to school is vital for the child’s education and for their overall wellbeing. At the same time there are a number of questions to consider about their families’ health and safety.”

We have a relatively exceptional situation in Grey and Bruce. We achieved high level of prevention of transmission and optimal control over the outbreak. As we move forward, the priority for Grey Bruce Public Health and the local school community is to continue to work together to help built a safe environment for school staff and children to learn.
