UCDSB passes motion that will see Kindergarten kids wear masks while at school
Trustees in the Upper Canada District School Board unanimously passed a motion that will require all Kindergarten students to wear masks while at school.
During their most recent board meeting, Dr. Paul Roumeliotis, Chief Medical Officer of Health with the Eastern Ontario Health Unit, told trustees there are no negative health risks for the youngest students in this age group to wear masks and that it will provide them with more protection.
Dr. Paula Stewart, medical officer for the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit agrees with the position.
This decision will go into effect at all UCDSB elementary schools on Monday, November 1st.
