K-12 Bulletin #9

Message from K-12 Presidents Council President Warren Williams

As many K-12 CUPE members will be back in classrooms on June 1, it’s important to recognize the work we have all done to enable re-opening our province under the guidance of Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonny Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix.

B.C. had two of the first cases of COVID-19. During our peak at the end of April, B.C. had just over 700 cases of infection. Now we are well under 300 active cases. Not only have we flattened the curve, we’ve curved it downwards.

B.C. took a scientific approach and the science that produced these very good results is the same science that is guiding our restart.

The PHO has lifted restrictions that are not needed at this time. They will continue to keep us up-to-date. This is a new virus and we’re learning more every day. As we get more information we may need to adapt what we’re doing.

In the meantime let’s continue doing our part by washing our hands frequently and maintaining two metres of physical distancing where possible.

In solidarity and safety,

Warren Williams
K-12 Presidents Council President
