NWHU works with schools in preparation for fall semester

The Northwestern Health Unit is working with schools on the new school guidance that they have received from the province by providing support and information and answering any questions that they might have.

Dr. Kit Young-Hoon, medical officer of health for the NWHU, said provincial guidance for schools includes wearing masks from grades 4 to 12.

Mandatory mask policy coming

On August 17, a mandatory mask policy will go into effect for the region covered by the Northwestern Health Unit. The mask policy will see masks required in all public, enclosed areas. Businesses will be required to create a mask policy in compliance with the instructions.
