Further pandemic supports are coming for students and schools across B.C. 300,000 rapid antigen test kids will be delivered in phases, the first phase being rural and remote school districts for use by students with symptoms of COVID-19.

“Since the return to class on Jan. 10, teachers and staff in B.C. have worked diligently to ensure classrooms and schools continue to be safe places and spaces for students to learn. I thank them for the tireless work they do each day to give students every opportunity to achieve their best,” said Jennifer Whiteside, Minister of Education.
