  • Students and staff in Ontario schools and child-care settings will each get two rapid COVID-19 tests after schools return to in-person learning next week.
    Tests will be distributed starting next week first to staff, then to children in daycares and students in public elementary schools, followed by high school students.
    Provincial officials say more tests will be provided when supply allows.
    People with symptoms are to use two tests 24 to 48 hours apart and can return to school after negative results once their symptoms improve.
    Lecce says the province will also be launching school-based inoculation clinics to spur greater vaccination of children and youth, and will be distributing more than nine million N95 masks to educators and child-care staff.

    Read a story out of Europe where health authorities are concerned about the boosters and the short amount of time in between receiving them.The concern has to do with the boosters wreaking havoc with individuals immune system.

      @LiplessEagle Professor Ehud Qimron, head of the department of microbiology and immunology at Tel Aviv University -
      “Two years late, you finally realize that a respiratory virus cannot be defeated and that any such attempt is doomed to fail. You do not admit it, because you have admitted almost no mistake in the last two years, but in retrospect, it is clear that you have failed miserably in almost all of your actions, and even the media is already having a hard time covering your shame.”

      @LiplessEagle whoops !!! ‘DOUBLE-JABBED Scots are now more likely to be admitted to hospital with Covid than the unvaccinated amid an increase in elderly people falling ill due to waning immunity. It comes amid "weird" data showing that case rates have been lower in unvaccinated individuals than the single, double, or even triple-jabbed since Omicron became the dominant variant in Scotland.’ - The Herald, Scotland, 13/01/2022

We want to know when there is cases in the school, which schools have the filters and which schools have tests on hand!!!

    Just read our boards return to school advisement. Other than 2 new rapid tests, the five from Christmas most parents used for travelling to Grandma's over the break, and non-fitted N95 masks for teachers, there is nothing new being done at our school. Kids are still allowed to drink and eat snacks in the classroom. Kids still will only be reminded and encouraged to wear their masks properly. Kids still will be grouped in the hundreds at lunch with no masks on in the cafeteria. LOL. My classes of 27 and 30 are still shoulder to shoulder for 145 minutes during the day. I think we should be in school, I prefer to teach from school, but it just makes me laugh how hard the government tries to make it look like they have actually done something to make things safer. We had rampant school outbreaks and community spread because of it, and they only admitted that after the year was over and they thought we were in the clear last summer. Now that we are in a major tidal wave of cases and hospitalizations, schools are safe again and we are not concerned about the rampant spread among kids and then kids to communities. Should be interesting in a week or even a few days the way Omicron seems to spread.

    Canadians are so brainwashed. My daughter goes to hug other kids she sees and some kids react with such shock that someone wants to make contact with them because their parents instilled paranoia in them. One kid yelled to their mom “mommy, mommy, she touched me. Will I get COVID”. True story. I was shocked and so angry. Some parents are so damaging to their children

    "Just Following Orders" is not a defence for mental abuse against children at school. The school system is clearly broken anyways. I will chip in to any fund started towards this.

    Amazing how the government of Ontario has deemed it appropriate to issue each student and teacher a 3-layer face mask for one-day use instead of 5-layer N95 masks. Again, it comes down to cost of implementing the safety features with the lowest cost that provide the protection Ontario taxpayers are willing to pay. Best protection is buying your child and yourself a certified N95 facemask from a certified dealer online or a local drug store/medical supplier. Cost should not be the factor that determines your level of safety when your health is involved.

    I hope that they give them to the supply teachers. Sometimes I am supplying in a school and I teacher 7 different classes within a day. Then the next day I might be at another school doing the same thing. I was never offered a rapid test kit so I hope that supply teachers have some easy way to access them.

      @Russel Cunningham They now live their entire life in fear of covid. The can't process facts like the disease having over 99% survival rate. They've lost all common sense. Worst of all, they'll allow an experimental drug into their children even though health children have zero risk from covid. Simply put, they've lost what perspective they had on life. Everything is covid.

    Putting the decision to the parents is a bad idea do you know how many times kids to go to school sick then later have COVID not following simply guidelines, this is going to be even worse. Screening should be done for every student coming in asking the parents directly at school or before getting on the bus.
