Effective March 21st, 2022:
The provincial government has begun to ease public health measures, including allowing facilities used for indoor sports and recreational fitness activities to open, while maintaining protective measures. In alignment with the Reopening Ontario Act, schools have been allowed to resume high-contact sports and activities. It continues to be very important that you or your child completes the online screening tool every day before school.
Anyone involved in sports or physical activity within a school or community setting who has completed their 5 day isolation period or is self-monitoring as a close contact, MUST NOT return to practice or play for an additional 5 days from the end of their isolation period or self-monitoring period if they are not able to maintain masking and physical distancing requirements (10 days from symptom onset or from the date of your test, whichever came first, or 10 days from the close contact exposure).
If they are able to maintain masking and physical distancing requirements, the individual can participate. This is because an infected person may be contagious up to 10 days after symptom onset/date of test.
