Covid Restriction Update- Norbert Carpenter

Parent/Guardian Message sent April 5, 2022

Subject: COVID-19 Update to Parents/Guardians – April 5, 2022

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Prince Edward Island is moving forward with a step-by-step plan to ease public health measures over the coming weeks and months as we transition out of a public health state of emergency and learn to live with COVID-19. Easing measures in the school system will continue to be assessed and prioritized as the situation permits. As for now, mask use in schools and testing at home will continue and will be reassessed in the next few weeks.

Mask Use at School Continues

Mask use in schools will continue for the month of April and will be reassessed by CPHO.

All K-12 students, staff, and visitors are required to wear masks in all indoor areas of school facilities, including in classrooms, while transitioning between classrooms and other school areas, staff areas, and while on school buses. Masks are not required outdoors.

For more information on mask use in schools and exemptions, please review the PSB Mask Use procedure:  https://edu.princeedwardisland.ca/psb/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/607.1_Non-medical_Mask_Procedure_Sept_13_2021.pdf

Testing at Home Continues

Testing at home will continue until at least the middle of April.  Students and staff are asked to continue with rapid antigen tests up to 3 times per week, depending on an adequate supply of rapid antigen tests. Others who share a household with students and staff in the school system are not required to test.  Rapid antigen testing requirements are intended to reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposures in the school setting.

If a test result is negative and your child is not experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, your child may attend school.

If a test result is positive, your child should consider themselves positive for COVID-19 and isolate immediately. You may take your child to be tested at a testing clinic to confirm a positive antigen test if you wish to do so.  Testing clinic hours and locations can be found at: https://www.princeedwardisland.ca/en/information/health-and-wellness/covid-19-testing-in-pei.

Students who have tested positive at a PEI testing clinic in the past 90 days AND have completed their self-isolation period AND are not experiencing symptoms – are considered exempt from the rapid antigen test screening program for school.

If your child tests positive for COVID-19, please contact your child’s school to inform them.

Close Contact Isolation 

Students who have been isolating as a household close contact, no longer need to isolate for 4 days, as of midnight tonight. If your child is feeling well and does not have symptoms of COVID-19, they can return to school tomorrow.

Thank you for your continued support.

Norbert CarpenterDirector

**********************************************************************

Dear Parents/Guardians, this message is in follow-up to yesterday’s COVID-19 Update message.  CPHO has provided additional information on the isolation requirements for household close contacts and has provided updated information on their website.  

Close Contact Isolation – Additional Information 

If your child is a household close contact and the positive case is isolating away from your child, your child can return to school and their activities as long as they are feeling well and do not have symptoms of COVID-19.  

Isolating away from a positive case means staying in a separate bedroom and not sharing common spaces, such as a bathroom or kitchen area. If these areas must be shared, do not use them at the same time and clean all surfaces after use.  If the positive case is not able to isolate away from other individuals in the home, those individuals must isolate with the positive case for the same period of time as the positive case.

For more information on COVID-19 Close Contacts, please visit: https://www.princeedwardisland.ca/en/information/health-and-wellness/covid-19-close-contacts

For more information on COVID-19 Self-isolation, please visit: https://www.princeedwardisland.ca/en/information/health-and-wellness/covid-19-self-isolation

Take care,

Norbert Carpenter
