- Self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms before entering a building.
- Wear a mask that covers the mouth and nose or provide notice of a medical exemption
In secondary schools: School visitors are permitted.

At this time, these meetings should not be held in classrooms - they should be held in the office areas and conference rooms to minimize the potential for contact with unvaccinated students.

If you need to know the approval status of a volunteer, please utilize the volunteer spreadsheet database. If you need assistance with this, please reach out to Melanie Oles-Graham.
