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

Summary

Earlier today, our government launched a webpage to report COVID-19 cases in schools and child care centres as part of our 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.

Key Messages

  • 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 our government made a promise to parents, that we would ensure that they would have access to the same information that we have.
  • Our government has launched a 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 our government is leveraging technology to protect the health and safety of the next generation.
