QUEEN’S PARK — Mike Schreiner released the following statement in response to news that take-home tests will be available for students:
“If the Premier really cared about protecting kids in schools, he’d make vaccines mandatory for education workers.
It doesn’t make any sense that children are being exposed to unvaccinated teachers and staff — especially when children under 12 remain ineligible for vaccines.
It’s dangerous and unfair.
The Premier has delayed and delayed on implementing the important measures that will keep kids safe.
In the summer, we released our Safe Schools plan to keep kids safe and keep schools open.
But the Premier ignored our ideas.
I’m calling on the government to make vaccines mandatory for education workers to protect kids in schools and make classrooms safer.”
