Safe Return to Child Care & School


The Ontario government is using a regional approach with the COVID-19 Response Framework: Keeping Ontario Safe and OpenTBDHU is currently in the "Grey - Lockdown" level. For more details, visit the Current Level page.

In this level, schools and child care are allowed to remain open for in-person learning. However, schools in the City of Thunder Bay, and surrounding municipalities, will be closed for in-person learning starting Monday, March 1, 2021 for a period of at least 2 weeks.

TBDHU works closely with partners in child care and education so that children and staff stay healthy. This will not change.

We are continuing to monitor COVID-19 in our area and will support child care and school communities throughout the year, across the entire TBDHU service area.

The following pages contain information and resources that parents and staff can use to support a safe return to child care and school:

The pages will be updated frequently as new information and resources become available. Please check back regularly.
