Schools and teaching environments - COVID-19 Preventive Measures in the Workplace

This information sheet is intended for employers and workers of different educational settings (preschools, elementary and secondary schools, colleges and universities) as well as those in settings offering vocational or general training to adults. It offers recommendations to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 and thus protect the health of all staff members, including teachers, professionals, support and management staff, etc. This information sheet does not apply to pupils, students and trainees who are not covered by Québec’s Occupational Health and Safety Act (LSST).

According to current knowledge, COVID-19 can be transmitted by symptomatic, pre-symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals who are carriers of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Therefore, this information sheet contains recommendations that apply at all times when the SARS-CoV-2 virus is in circulation. COVID-19 control measures rely on a hierarchy of measures, which applies to all workplaces.
