Three Canadian studies will help determine how many teachers may have had COVID-19

As in-class learning has been affected in much of the country due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of Canada, through its CITF, is supporting three research projects that will estimate how many teachers and school personnel have been infected with SARS-CoV-2. Approximately $2.9 million has been provided for three studies, one each in Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia, to help further inform decision-making around prevention strategies in neighbourhoods, schools and daycares.
