Protocols for Working in Schools During the COVID-19 Pandemic

operational guidelines

We look forward to re-opening all of the schools of Waterloo Catholic DSB.  The purpose of these protocols is to provide administrators, school staff, as well as our broader WCDSB community with the confidence that our schools are being set up with specific expectations and guidance.  For our staff, within this document is direction that is provided in order to mitigate the risk to everyone in our communities as school reopen.

As is always the case with respect to health concerns, the WCDSB takes its guidance from medical authorities. These protocols have been developed based information provided by the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Labour, Region of Waterloo Public Health, Public Health Agency of Canada and the World Health Organization.   Further any specific guidance that is particular to curricular areas, have been informed by broader provincial and national association guidance.

What we Know About Covid-19

Symptoms

Most healthy people who are infected with COVID-19 will have a mild illness like a cold or flu. They may have a fever, cough, sore muscles, or a sore throat https://www.ontario.ca/page/covid-19-stop-spread#section-0. Some people may feel short of breath. Most people recover from this disease without needing special treatment. People who are much older or who already have health problems are more likely to get sicker with novel coronavirus and may need to be in the hospital. COVID-19 symptoms can be mild and are like influenza and other respiratory illnesses.

Prevention

COVID-19 spreads the same way as other viruses that cause colds and flus. Human coronaviruses are most commonly spread from an infected person through: respiratory droplets; close, prolonged personal contact; and touching an infected area, then touching mouth, nose or eyes before washing hands. https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/diseases/2019-novel-coronavirus-infection/health-professionals.html#t. Sharing dishes and forks and spoons, water bottles and drink containers could also spread the virus from someone who is sick to someone who is not. You can help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Prevention starts with awareness.

The following practices will help reduce the spread of COVID-19:

  • Practice physical distancing – 2 meters
  • Stay home and self-isolate when you are feeling sick
  • Wash your hands frequently
  • Cover coughs and sneezes
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Wear a mask and/or face covering

Good Hygiene

Wash your hands well and often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds https://www.publichealthontario.ca/-/media/documents/ncov/factsheet/factsheet-COVID-19-hand-hygiene.pdf?la=en. If soap and water are not available, you can use hand sanitizer. If your hands are dirty, or you have touched a surface that others also have touched, wash your hands. Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth until your hands are washed. Cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue, then wash your hands. Washing your hands, not touching your face, and staying home when you are sick are the best ways to help you and your friends stay healthy.

Staff with symptoms and parents/guardians of children with symptoms should be directed to use the online self-assessment tool and follow instructions https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening/. Persons who test positive may not return to school until they are cleared according to public health guidance.

Schools must ensure records of classes, including seating charts, bus cohorts, and daily records of any approved visitors to the school, including supply/occasional teachers or custodians are maintained and readily available to be provided to public health for contact tracing purposes.

Prevention Measures for All Staff

  • Self-quarantine for 14 days after international travel or if you have been directed by Public Health to do so (e.g., close contact of a positive case). Contact Human Resources Services if this applies to you.
  • If you experience any symptoms of COVID-19, it is strongly recommended that you get tested.
  • Complete a self-assessment each day prior to attending work https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening/
  • When in an adapted delivery mode most classrooms will be limited to a capacity of 15 students in order to allow for physical distancing 2 meters for everyone in the classroom – students and staff.
  • All staff in schools are required to wear the appropriate prescribed personal protective equipment while working the in the vicinity of others when in schools.
  • To the extent possible, staff and students should endeavor to maintain physical distancing when within the school and classroom environment.

Protocols for Managing COVID-19 in Schools

WCDSB COVID-19 Management Protocol: Frequently asked Questions (FAQ)

Introduction

This document provides a summary of key information contained in the Government of Ontario COVID-19 guidance documents linked above, as well as other important Public Health and school management information.

An expanded version of this document – including information about curriculum, teaching and learning – is available via the school board’s current Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page.

Roles & Responsibilities

Q: What is the role of Region of Waterloo Public Health (ROWPH) in managing a COVID-19 outbreak in a WCDSB school?

A: The role of Region of Waterloo Public Health (ROWPH) in managing a COVID-19 outbreak in a WCDSB school is to:

  • Determine if an outbreak exists and declare an outbreak.
  • Provide guidance and recommendations to the school on outbreak control measures in conjunction with advice provided by the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health.
  • Provide recommendations on cohort(s) isolation, and the potential need for full or partial school dismissal based on the scope of the outbreak.
  • Make recommendations on who to test, in alignment with the province’s broader testing strategy; where recommended, facilitate a coordinated approach to testing, in collaboration with Ontario Health, including provision of an investigation or outbreak number.
  • Issue orders by the medical officer of health or their designate under the Health Protection & Promotion Act (HPPA), if necessary.
  • Declare the outbreak over, based on:
  • at least 14 days from the last outbreak associated case (including in a student, staff, essential visitor, or anyone else in the school during the outbreak).
  • no further symptomatic individuals with tests pending.

NOTE: An outbreak in a school is defined as two or more lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases in students and/or staff in a school with an epidemiological link, within a 14-day period, where at least one case could have reasonably acquired their infection in the school (including transportation and before or after school care).

The outbreak does not necessarily need to be over to re-open the school. Cohorts without evidence of transmission can be gradually brought back to school as additional information and test results become available.

 

Q: What is the role of the Waterloo Catholic District School Board (WCDSB) in managing a COVID-19 outbreak in a WCDSB school?

A: The role of the Waterloo Catholic District School Board in managing a COVID-19 outbreak in a WCDSB school is to:

  • Report a communicable disease to (ROWPH) as per Section 28 of the Health Protection & Promotion Act (HPPA).
  • Maintain a COVID-19 Advisory section on the school board website and post information if there is a confirmed case of COVID-19 that involves a student or a staff member in a school setting (ensuring the protection of personal privacy at all times – posted information will not identify the student or staff member that has received a positive COVID-19 test).
  • Maintain accurate records of staff and students’ attendance, for all common school locations attended by staff and students (e.g. school transportation, in-person attendance or work at a physical school location, before/after school programs located at a school, or other facilities shared with the school) for the last 30 days, as well as up to date contact information for staff and students. This information should be available to be accessed and shared with Region of Waterloo Public Health in a timely manner (within 24 hours) for investigations and communications. This includes:
  • Facilitating access for ROWPH to staff lists for staff not directly employed by the school board (e.g., transportation staff, before/after school program staff).
  • Keeping a log of all visitors (e.g., essential volunteers, contractors, parents/guardians, etc.) who enter the school, location(s) visited and dates/times of visit to facilitate contact follow-up if needed.
  • In collaboration with ROWPH, communicate proactively with the school community about COVID-19 prevention measures and about how ill individuals, cases, and outbreaks will be handled.
  • Provide training to school staff with respect to outbreak prevention and control measures, including infection prevention and control (IPAC) measures and the use of personal protective equipment (PPE).

Mandatory Masking

Students in Grades 1 to 12 must wear masks or face coverings, unless an approved exemption form has been received:

  • in schools, including in hallways and during classes
  • on school transportation
  • outdoors, where physical distance cannot be maintained

Students in kindergarten are also required to wear non-medical or cloth masks in indoor spaces, including school transportation.

Mandatory Self-Screening of Students & Staff

>> Students and staff need to check for symptoms of illness every day before going to school. You can screen your child or yourself by taking the COVID-19 school and childcare screening

Enhanced On-site Screening

>> Schools will conduct daily on-site confirmation of self-screening for secondary students, staff, and visitors – either before entering the school, or at the start of the school day.

Secondary Students, Teachers & Staff

  • All secondary students must confirm their COVID-19 self-screening result daily.
  • All school staff (elementary & secondary) must confirm their COVID-19 self-screening result daily.

New Isolation Requirements

>> Staff, students, and children attending childcare with any new or worsening symptom of COVID-19, as indicated in the school and childcare screening tool – even those with only one symptom – must stay home until

  • They receive a negative COVID-19 test result
  • They receive an alternative diagnosis by a health care professional, or
  • It has been 10 days since their symptom onset, and they are feeling better.

>> All asymptomatic household contacts of symptomatic individuals are required to quarantine until the symptomatic household member:

  • receives a negative COVID-19 test result, or
  • receives an alternative diagnosis by a health care professional

>> If the symptomatic individual tests positive or is not testedand does not receive an alternative diagnosis from a health care professional, the symptomatic individual must isolate (including from household members) for 10 days from symptom onset, and all household contacts must isolate until 14 days from their last contact with the symptomatic individual.

Important Region of Waterloo Public Health Information

Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) – Minimum Standard –

All school staff members will receive two (2) level 1 or 2 masks each day.  PPE must always be worn when performing the duties of your job, which means a mask as a minimum standard.  Where physical distancing cannot be maintained one’s face shield, goggles or board-approved safety glasses must be worn when working within 2M of other staff or students.  Additional job functions will require additional PPE per below.

Gloves should not be used where there is a risk of gloves being caught on tools, equipment or machinery.  If gloves are used, tools, equipment, machinery and materials must still be cleaned at the end of each class or after each use if shared.

How to clean and disinfect tools, equipment, machinery and materials

  1. Wash or disinfect hands.
  2. If an item was touched by someone other than the one cleaning and disinfecting, the individual must wear PPE such as gloves for the hands and face shield the eyes, face, and mouth.
  3. If applicable, make sure all power is off and disconnected.  Read the manufacturer’s directions for cleaning to avoid possible damage from cleaning materials.
  4. Brush all dry solid materials / dirt off the surface to be cleaned, being careful not to aerosolize dirt/debris as much as possible.
  5. Wipe the surface with soap and water to remove all visible debris and stains, and some of the germs before disinfecting.
  6. Follow labeled instructions and safety data sheets on all containers of the disinfecting product you use. A new area of the cloth should be used for each surface. Fold the cloth with the used section inwards so, that an unused section of the cloth is used to clean with. Reusable cleaning items can be washed using regular laundry soap and hot water (60-90°C).
  7. As a result of our local public health unit reviewing the COVID supports available in our schools, a recommendation has been made that disinfecting wipes should only be used for Chromebooks/laptops/keyboards. For everything else, including toys, table tops, weight room equipment, materials used by students in labs, and other shared items, spray disinfectant should be used.The provincial government has supplied 4 brands of spray disinfectants for our schools.  To be effective, spray disinfectants must sit on target surfaces for a specified period of time.  Following are the sit times for the products we have:
      • PDQ – 5 minutes
      • Pre-Empt – 3 minutes
      • Strong Arm – 5 minutes
      • EnviroCare Neutral Disinfectant – 10 minutes

    Once complete, the disinfectant can be wiped off with a damp cloth or paper towel.

  8. Remove disposable PPE and discard, per the demonstrations in your Health and Safety Training and visuals in the school.
  9. Wash hands after removing all PPE.

How to clean and disinfect reusable PPE

A: Goggles, Safety Glasses, Face Shields, Welding helmets, Hard hats etc. (e.g. anything that has a hard, non-porous surface)

  1. Wipe the inside and outside with a clean cloth with mild detergent.
  2. Wipe the inside and outside with disinfectant, sufficiently wetting the entire surface to permit the required wet contact time.
  3. Allow the surface to remain wet for the contact time as stated on the product label and let air dry.
  4. Remove gloves (if worn) and wash hands.
  5. Continue to assess safety equipment/PPE for integrity, ensuring it is is not breaking down or cracked.

B: Hospitality aprons, hairstyling and aesthetics gowns, towels and linens

  • Where possible such items are not to be shared and can be designated for individual student use over a number of days.
    • All shared items must be laundered between student use and/or between classes. If they cannot be cleaned and sanitized, then the class must be modified to limit the use of these items.
  • Regular detergent can be used for laundering. Set washer and dryer on the hot cycle.
  • The laundry baskets should be cleaned and disinfected between use.

C: PPE that cannot be clean and disinfected or laundered after each use (e.g. welding chaps, jackets and gloves, beanies and coveralls)

  • Disinfectants are intended for use on hard surfaces and require a level of saturation and wait time that cannot be achieved on fabrics and leathers. Therefore, disinfectants are not to be used to clean fabric or leather PPE.
  • Such items may only be shared between students after they have been isolated for a minimum of 72 hours.
  • Minimize the movement of students as much as possible.
  • Avoid sharing of lab equipment to the greatest extent possible.
  • Any equipment that is not shared must be cleaned after each class. If students assist with the cleaning, they must be instructed on how to do so properly.
