COVID-19 Updates

January 11, 2020

To safeguard the health and well-being of our community, St. George’s School has developed a COVID-19 Safety Plan based on guidance issued by the Provincial Health Officer, BC Centre for Disease Control, WorkSafeBC, and the Ministry of Education.  Our commitment is to safeguard students, employees, contractors, visitors, and school facilities by implementing exposure control and infection prevention measures using a number of different measures including masks, increased cleaning, physical distancing, and enhanced air filtration in common spaces.  Our plan will be updated as the situation warrants or new directives are issued by provincial officials.  
Safety begins at home, and, as Dr. Bonnie Henry has declared, each of us has the responsibility to do our part in helping to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our broader community.  To preserve the health of our community, it is important that we continue to adhere to all of the directives set out by our various levels of government.  This currently includes avoiding “social gatherings of any size at your residence with anyone other than your core household” and “all in-person events and community-based gatherings,” along with all non-essential travel outside of Canada. 
When in any of our school buildings, we ask that you:  
    • complete a daily health check for any COVID-19 related symptoms and do not enter any school building if you have any symptoms;
    • sanitize hands prior to, and after entering, the building;
    • sign in, either at one of the Reception desks or by using your school issued ID cards;
    • wear a mask;
    • maintain a 2M physical distance from others; and,
    • abide by the directives of provincial and federal authorities, including the requirement to quarantine upon returning to Canada.

With your help, we will continue to safeguard the health and well-being of the students, staff and families of St. George’s School.

Thank you for all that you have done, are doing, and continue to do. The end is in sight, keep up the good work!
