Preschool

Wearing a procedural mask is mandatory while using school transportation with multiple grade levels only, that is, aboard buses or sedans transporting students in different grades.

Elementary school

Wearing a mask is mandatory at all times inside the school: in classrooms, at the daycare, in common areas and while students are circulating, as well as while using school transportation.

Wearing a procedural mask is also required during Physical Education and Health classes, if maintaining 2 metres of physical distancing is not possible and the class is held indoors.

Secondary school

Starting on November 15, wearing a mask will no longer be mandatory in class. However it will be in common areas and while students are circulating. A child who chooses to still wear a mask can do so.

Adult general education and vocational training

Wearing a procedural mask is mandatory at all times, even in class.
