Joint letter to Canadian premiers about the safe reopening of schools

Prior to the start of the school year, the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA), the Canadian Association of Paediatric Nurses (CAPN), and the Community Health Nurses of Canada (CHNC) sent letters to Canadian premiers to strongly recommend that their focus remains in fighting the pandemic. They urged extreme caution and strong protocols informed by public health advice to ensure that appropriate measures were put in place to support physical distancing and other essential measures to prevent and detect transmission in schools.
