Below is a letter from Santé publique Montérégie regarding new measures for students at home and at school. We are still waiting for the English translation but these are the points to remember:
- If your child has symptoms compatible with COVID-19, you must keep them home and consult the online assessment tool: https://covid19.quebec.ca/surveys/cdd2/introduction?language=en-ca. You no longer need to wait 24 hours before going for a COVID test.
- NEW: If anyone in the household is awaiting a COVID-19 test result, all members of the household must self-isolate until the test results are received. Once the test results are received, the decision to be able to return to school is given by Santé publique.
- If anyone in your household receives a positive COVID-19 test result, it is important to contact the school immediately. Any positive results received on the weekend can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- For all questions related to COVID-19, please call Santé publique at 1-877-644-4545.
Thank you for your continued collaboration and support
