The province says it is still considering whether schools in B.C. will remain open once spring break ends in two weeks.
But a “formal announcement” on schools is expected to take place tomorrow. A press conference about the ongoing spread of COVID-19 is ongoing on Monday morning.
Alberta and Saskatchewan have both closed schools and daycares.
About daycares, Dr. Bonnie Henry, the province’s health official, said: “We are in discussions whether we have to take precautions.”
There are concerns about whether the closure of daycares and schools could impact the ability of health care professionals to work.
