Catholic schools implementing vaccination requirement

By Lethbridge Herald on October 15, 2021.

Holy Spirit Catholic School Division is implementing new COVID-19 rules starting Oct. 25.
All people who are in contact with school buildings will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or participate in regular rapid testing, the division said in a release this week.
“Throughout this pandemic, Holy Spirit Catholic School Division has been collectively steadfast in our commitment to keeping our students and staff safe – physically, mentally, spiritually, and academically. We continue to assess and implement measures that we believe will have a positive impact on the health and safety of our schools,” says Holy Spirit in a release.
The only people who the new rules won’t apply to are those who require an accommodation “pursuant to a protected grounds under the Alberta Human Rights Act” or do regular rapid testing, says Holy Spirit.
The requirement will apply to staff, visitors, contractors, volunteers and staff from community agencies who enter school buildings.
The regulations do not apply to students.
