Dear Parents / Guardians,
I was contacted late last night by the Vancouver Island COVID-19 Rapid Response Team about a letter they had crafted with Island Health for distribution to all parents and guardians on the island.
The purpose of the attached letter is to remind parents and guardians of the importance of remaining vigilant in reducing possible exposures to COVID-19 and as well as doing daily health checks of your children before sending them to school. You can use the COVID-19 Health Check App to determine if you or your child should stay home and be tested for the virus. If your child is not feeling well please keep them at home and call 811 to speak with a health professional. If necessary, COVID-19 testing appointments can be made by calling 1-844-901-8442 (8:30 am – 8:00 pm).
Thank you for your continuing efforts at helping to keep our community safe.
