Where are the new measures and support for schools in the red zones?” asks QPAT

MONTREAL, Oct. 2, 2020 /CNW Telbec/ – “Teachers are feeling abandoned. Most of our teachers are working in schools located in the “red zones” and while the Minister of Health asks the general public to stay inside their family bubbles and avoid gatherings, teachers are being asked to spend their days in poorly ventilated classrooms with up to 32 students with no masks, and no social distancing. It’s inconsistent and illogical,” said Heidi Yetman, president of the Quebec Provincial Association of Teachers (QPAT).

Many regions of Quebec are now declared “red zones”, which means that they have reached a critical level for the spread of Covid-19. New public health measures and rules have been put into place by the Ministry of Health for the general public. The QPAT is asking why the Ministry of Health has not imposed any new additional public health measures for schools and centres in order to protect the health and safety of teachers, students and their respective families and to reduce the spread of Covid-19.
