City of Toronto

  • Toronto Public Health is establishing a team of more than 70 nurses to provide support to schools as they reopen.
    • These nurses will provide education and training sessions to school staff, parents and caregivers to promote infection prevention and control measures, and other public health advice to limit opportunities for virus spread.
    • Public health teams will also be providing mental health and well-being support in school settings, along with rapid-response outbreak investigation, case management and support the planning process for testing if a COVID-19 case is detected in a school setting.
  • The City of Toronto is gearing up to offer fall recreation programs beginning this October as well as After-school Recreation Care (ARC) and Community Leadership After-School Program (CLASP) this September. Registration for fall recreation programming will take place from September 12 to 16.
    • Fall recreation programs will be modified to comply with public health guidelines and provincial restrictions. The programs will run with reduced capacity to allow for physical distancing and to ensure that people can safely participate in indoor settings. Some programs will not resume if they require the sharing of equipment or food supplies. Read more…
