Protocols for the Associates Program
For the past two years, NBS has prioritized the health and safety of students, staff and school communities. As we move to a more sustainable, long-term approach to managing COVID-19, all in our community are encouraged to continue with the layers of protection that make them feel comfortable.
As per direction of the Ministry of Education, the following health and safety measures will be in place for the Associates Program:
- Students and staff are expected to complete daily screening before coming into any NBS building (Signing-in with NBS’ door staff upon entry onto NBS property is confirmation of your commitment to the health declaration)
- Enhanced cleaning
- Optimizing air quality and ventilation, including HEPA filters in every occupied classroom
- Encouraging hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette, such as coughing into your sleeve
- Reporting daily absences of staff and students and notifying Toronto Public Health when absences exceed 30%
As of March 21, masks will no longer be required to be worn in schools, though they are strongly encouraged.
Effective March 14th
, 2022, NBS no longer requires vaccine disclosure for COVID-19. NBS continues to strongly recommend vaccination as a layer of protection.
The province has updated their household isolation measures to indicate that in some cases, household members may not need to isolate if there is a positive case of COVID-19 in their home, depending on their vaccination status. At NBS we will continue to follow isolation guidelines recommended by Toronto Public Health.
