Ontario Schools Won't Be Reopening

Ontario Schools Won't Be Reopening”

Ontario public health units logged significantly more cases of COVID-19 than that reported these past three days, as well as roughly a fourth of what governments have proposed as the ideal testing rate of 20,000.

Almost half (49.6 per cent) of all confirmed cases stem from close contact with someone who has the virus.

There have also been 15 more deaths - the lowest single-day death toll since early April.

According to Peel's website, 192 COVID-19 patients have had to be hospitalized.

The announcement was made today with Ford saying the safety of students is the number one priority. The orders include closing bars and restaurants except for takeout and delivery and prohibiting social gatherings of more than five people.

It's official. Schools won't be reopening in 2019-2020.

Private schools, licensed child care centres and EarlyON programs will also remain closed for the safety and protection of children, families and staff through Stage 1 of the Framework for Reopening the Province. However, outdoor playgrounds, play structures and equipment, fitness equipment, public swimming pools, splash pads and similar outdoor water facilities will remain closed "until later stages of the province's reopening plan".

Yesterday, Mayor John Tory said in an interview with CP24 that he hoped public pools would reopen in the "next few weeks".

"We recognize that daycare and child care is vital to our recovery".

The government is also leveraging all tools, resources, technologies and services to assist school boards to deliver learning through access to technology and internet connectivity, especially for students in rural parts of the province, to support at-home learning.

Outbreaks at eight long-term care (LTC) homes have been reported in the area contributing to these statistics, leading to six cases among LTC residents or patients and 10 LTC employees.

Lecce said the goal is to start the next school year on-time in September with new physical distancing guidelines, which will be revealed before the end of June.

Calling it "not an easy decision but the right decision" Premier Doug Ford announced Tuesday that while online learning will remain in place, classrooms provincewide will be closed for the remainder of the school year.

Publicly funded schools will not reopen this academic year.

When it comes to summer school, Lecce says it will continue with new physical distancing protocols. Many parents have not sent their children back.
