Good afternoon. For people asking about representation from unions, we have worked closely with a steering committee made up of educators, parents, support workers, school leaders, trustees, Indigenous rightsholders and public health experts to develop a plan that will ensure students can return to the classroom in September safely. This committee includes reps from the BCTF, CUPE, BCCPAC, BCASBO, FNESC, and superintendents as well.

BCCDC website shows there are COVID cases in kids virtually every day. But they are supposedly less susceptible? Worldwide data is inconclusive with regards to COVID & kids. As in, there is not enough strong data because the data set is always small.

Will the government be transparent about outbreaks in schools or is the strategy going to be “as needs” basis as we have seen with non-LTC outbreaks?

Can I please have a reply about whether public schools will provide online learning, or is it only independent programs?

What about daycares and the really littles - I’m looking after my granddaughter and nervous about sending her back to daycare - assuming we can find a spot as her day home is closer for good
