Management of Illness and Confirmed Cases FAQs

As the health, safety and wellbeing of our students, staff and families are paramount, the North Vancouver School District has in place strict health and safety measures co-developed by public health officials, education partners and ministry staff.

We will continue to work under the Ministry of Education’s Operational Guidelines for School District and Independent School Authorities and Provincial COVID-19 Health & Safety Guidelines for K-12 Settings, and we will adapt and implement any changes to our plan that may come from the Ministry of Education or Provincial Health Officer. Information specific to the North Vancouver School District Stage 2 Restart Plan can be found HERE.

The purpose of this FAQ is to share with our community of students, staff and families, including members of the public, information on the processes, roles and responsibilities involved in managing symptoms of illness, exposure to COVID-19, and confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 within the school community. It is largely informed from the Ministry of Education’s COVID-19 Protocols for School and District Administrators - Management of Illness and Confirmed Cases.

In late October, NVSD Superintendent Mark Pearmain along with West Vancouver Schools' Superintendent Chris Kennedy hosted for a Q&A, Dr. John Harding, Vancouver Coastal Health’s new North Shore Medical Health Officer. Dr. Harding answered COVID-19 questions we received from families and staff across the two school districts.

The recorded session is now available for viewing on our district Vimeo account. Chapter markers are included for your convenience and highlight each question asked.
