VICTORIA, B.C. – The Province has provided updated operational guidelines to School Districts to help ensure a consistent province-wide approach to keep schools safe for all students, teachers and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the Government, under the updated guidelines, masks will be required for staff, middle and secondary students in high traffic areas such as buses and in common areas such as hallways, or anytime outside of their learning group whenever physical distancing cannot be maintained.

The Province says exceptions will be made for students who cannot wear masks for medical reasons.
