Additional health measures are being called for in schools in Pointe-de-l’Île de Montréal to deal with the spread of COVID-19.
The Pointe-de-l’Île Teaching Union has thus expressed serious concerns since the return to class due to the increase in positivity rates in the boroughs served.
Additional resources have therefore been requested to promote the deployment of rapid screening in this sector, but also to accelerate the measurement of CO2 concentrations in establishments.
“Teaching premises that do not meet the standards in force in Quebec could be identified more quickly and corrective measures could be taken sooner,” he was then put forward in a press release released by the union on Friday.
The Legault government indicated in early January that nearly 30% of COVID-19 cases come from schools.
