Families and students can use the
K-12 Health Check app (is being updated by the Ministry to align with recent changes to public health guidance).
Daily Health Check from the B.C. Ministry of Education (version: September 22, 2021, no new version published).
- Staff, students and families can also use the BCCDC online Self-Assessment Tool, call 8-1-1 or their health care provider.
- Please refer to the BCCDC’s
