To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, a number of protocols are in place. These public health measures are important for everyone to follow. If you’re looking for information or resources to reinforce these safety measures, please see below:

Cough & Sneeze Etiquette

Also known as, “respiratory etiquette”, covering your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing can help reduce the spread of germs in the air. Teaching this, or reviewing this, can help remind students how they can help prevent others from getting sick.

Use these videos in your class to complement discussions on respiratory etiquette:

Physical Distancing

Public health recommends maintaining at least 2 metres (6 feet) between people at all times. This distance protects both people from spreading the virus or catching the virus from one another, as the virus is not believed to be able to travel this far in the air.

*This physical distancing applies to people who live in other households from you.

Use these videos in your class to complement discussions on physical distancing:
