COVID-19 in Schools – Refresher Education Session

About this event

The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit (WECHU), in partnership with the Windsor Essex Local Immigration Partnership (WE LIP) is pleased to bring to you an educational opportunity to learn about the latest changes to the COVID-19 school reopening guidelines. This will include changes to class dismissal practices and isolation requirements.

We hope that this information will be useful to you when providing services to clients with school-aged children.

What you can expect from this session:

  • A brief review of COVID-19 and infection prevention controls in schools, highlighting changes from the previous school year
  • An in-depth look at the newest guidelines/requirements for attending school in-person during COVID-19. This includes information on personal protective equipment, symptom screening, and what a family must do if their child is dismissed from school due to COVID-19
  • A step-by-step review of the actions taken by the public health unit when investigating a potential case of COVID-19 in a school. This includes a review of the changes made to the communication resources shared with families, and expectations for students who are dismissed as part of a cohort dismissal
  • A list of available resources/programs to support students who are dismissed as part of a cohort dismissal

To help tailor our information to fit your needs, please submit any questions you may have around COVID-19 and schools reopening. You will be able to submit questions during registration until Friday, September 3rd at noon.


To help us improve our services and potentially plan future education opportunities, we will be gathering feedback from participants. After the session, a survey link will be shared with participants. We thank you in advance for taking the time to provide us with your thoughts, and the information needed to help us share key information with our community.

The event will be hosted via ZOOM
