The pandemic is not over. The Delta variant, a highly transmissible variant of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV2 is on the rise in Alberta. As schools are set to open, we must protect children and education workers by enhancing protection in schools.
Children under 12 have not yet received vaccines and we must invest in both immediate and long-term safety measures in schools. The relaxing of school safety measures by the UCP government is premature and we need to demand that the Alberta government and school boards do everything they can to make sure schools are safe!
