COVID-19 School and Licensed Child Care-specific Web Page

Published on September 11, 2020

Earlier today, the government launched a webpage to report COVID-19 cases in schools and child care centres as part of an effort to transparently communicate with parents and the public. This page will be updated every weekday with the most up to date COVID-19 information available, including a summary of cases in schools and licensed child care centres and agencies, if a COVID-19 case is confirmed at a school and where the numbers come from.

 

We know that this September comes with a new set of challenges, as many children return to school. We have pulled out all the stops for Ontario’s students. It is why we have ensured that schools can reopen safely, with a $1.3 billion plan that is endorsed by Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. David Williams.

 

The Premier and this government made a promise to parents, that they would ensure that parents would have access to the same information that we have. As a result, the government has launched the webpage to report COVID-19 cases in schools and child care centres to ensure transparency for parents.

 

This page will be updated every weekday with the most up to date COVID-19 information available, including a summary of cases in schools and licensed child care centres and agencies, if a COVID-19 case is confirmed at a school and where the numbers come from. As Ontario students return to school, we are developing new and innovative ways to combat COVID-19 in the classroom which is just one way the government is leveraging technology to protect the health and safety of the next generation.
