The province has now mandated masks in all indoor public spaces, beginning on Thursday, November 19.
What does this mean for schools in NWSD?
Schools are not a part of the new public health order. Since the beginning of the school year NWSD has worked with the Saskatchewan Health Authority and the Ministries of Health and Education to create approved plans to ensure student and staff safety.
Masks remain mandatory for all students grade 4-12, where 2m physical distancing is not possible.
Masks are also mandatory on all school division buses, for all grades.
At this time, public health considers our current health and safety plans sufficient, and there are no additional measures required.
We will continue to work with the province for guidance and review our health and safety practices as needed.
