Only elementary school students in Grade 5 and up are required to wear masks in the common areas of school. Students are not obliged to wear them in the classroom.

The QCT recently interviewed Dr. Gary Kobinger, founder and CEO of Global Urgent and Advanced Research and Development (GUARD). He is a professor in the department of microbiology and infectious diseases and the director of the research centre on infectious diseases, faculty of medicine at Université Laval.
