Toronto Public Health further limits in-person attendance at schools and educational institutions – Toronto – fr


Health officials in Toronto have issued an order requiring schools and other educational institutions to limit in-person attendance for most purposes, not just classes, in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

The Toronto Department of Public Health said the order is intended to complement provincially-imposed school closures and will come into effect at 12:01 a.m. Monday.

The agency says the new rule applies to all educational institutions, not just those designated as schools or private schools under the Education Act.
