As of Monday, February 1, in-person learning can resume in the region served by the Eastern Ontario Health Unit. Students attending schools administered by the Upper Canada District School Board, the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario, Le Conseil des écoles publiques de l'Est de l'Ontario and Le Conseil scolaire de district catholique de l'Est ontarien will now be able to return to classrooms. The government agrees with the growing consensus in the medical community that returning students to in-person learning is essential to the wellbeing, development and mental health of children. According to leading medical and scientific experts, including Ontario's Chief Medical Officer of Health, schools are safe places for learning.
