On June 17, 2021 the Ministry of Education released Guidelines for Boards of Education and Independent School Authorities for the 2021/22 School Year. This provides guidance across a number of key topics, clarifies provincial expectation and includes links to additional information and resources that can support local decision making and communication. Please also view the COVID-19 Information and Resources web page for the BCCDC Outlook for the 2021-22 School Year and Ministry of Education News Release.
Interior Health (IH) has recently launched its IH Mobile Immunization Clinic in partnership with the British Columbia Automobile Association (BCAA), and will be travelling through the Interior region, making stops in over 40 communities along the way.

No advance appointments are necessary for the drop-in clinics and all people are encouraged to walk-up, register and receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
