Nov. 9, 2020: Surrey Schools Update from Surrey Schools on Vimeo.
In his most recent video update, Surrey Schools Supt. Jordan Tinney addresses the new health orders issued by Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry, what they are designed to do and what we know about our schools and COVID-19 exposures.
Tinney notes there are "no surprises" in the new health orders, which include a reminder about the importance of wearing masks, staying home if you have symptoms or are ill, and for everyone to use caution and limit social gatherings.
"These orders are designed specifically to keep schools open and to protect schools," says Tinney, adding the district will have more information for schools about the new health orders in the coming days.
Tinney points out that though our schools have issued more than 120 notices of COVID-19 exposure, there have been just three classes asked by Fraser Health to self-isolate – indicating transmission is seldom happening within the "controlled environment" of the school setting.
"Each one of us needs to do our part," Tinney says. "In the meantime students are in schools and learning. I watch posts every single day of great things happening in our schools and classrooms around the district. Despite COVID there is joy in schools every day."
