Additional Restrictions for Schools in the Winnipeg Metropolitan Region

In addition, the following measures will be put in place for schools in regions under the Restricted Level (Orange), effective Oct. 26, 2020:

  • K-8 students may be offered temporary remote learning for the duration of the Restricted level (orange) to create additional space, where required.
  • Blended learning (in-class and online) for grades 9 to 12 where distancing cannot be achieved will continue as per status quo.
  • Schools must ensure two meters of physical distancing to the greatest extent possible, and adjust classroom space as necessary; excess furniture must be removed from classrooms to create additional space; other spaces within schools must be repurposed to accommodate more distancing (e.g., multipurpose rooms, empty rooms, shared spaces, common areas, and libraries).
  • Extracurricular activities are only permitted if all learning and distancing requirements have been met. If these activities continue, established guidelines must be followed and, in the case of sports, participants should maintain distance when not active.
  • Teachers and staff who move across cohorts of students, including substitute teachers, are required to wear medical masks. Medical-grade disposable masks have been issued to all schools. N95 masks are not required.
  • Indoor choir and the use of wind instruments are not permitted.
  • All field trips must be postponed or cancelled.
  • All other public health measures are still in effect.
