The Windsor Essex County Health Unit is recommending local school boards delay non-essential activities until at least October.

The recommendations are due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in Windsor and Essex County.

Health unit CEO Nicole Dupuis says that all extra-curricular activities, including sports, clubs, field trips, and other non-essential activities, within all school settings (both elementary and secondary schools) be delayed until at least October 2021.

She says the Health Unit is recommending no in person assemblies (virtual gatherings only), no in person staff meetings (virtual gatherings only), indoor mask wearing for all students attending in person learning (including JK/SK classes) at all times, physical activity classes should take place outdoors as much as possible with additional restrictions.

The Health Unit is also recommending limiting the amount of non-cohort contact that individuals have throughout the school day.
