The Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB) continues to work closely with Region of Waterloo Public Health as we respond to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic. The following resources, obtained from Region of Waterloo Public Health and Public Health Ontario, are intended to provide information to WRDSB families as you make decisions about your health.
International travel rules
As of February 28, 2022, the Government of Canada updated its quarantine rules for unvaccinated travellers under the age of 12. All children under the age of 12 who travel with fully vaccinated adults are now exempt from quarantine, without any limitations on their activities. This means they no longer need to wait 14 days before attending school.
Unvaccinated and partially vaccinated children under the age of 12 who travel with unvaccinated or partially vaccinated adults must quarantine for 14 days upon their return to Canada.
Unvaccinated and partially vaccinated individuals 12 years of age or older must quarantine for 14 days, whether or not they are accompanied by fully vaccinated adults.
Please refer to the Government of Canada’s travel rules for more information and guidance. All WRDSB students must complete the Ontario COVID-19 school and child care screening questionnaire each day before going to school.
