COVID-19 Support Resources

While the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a different school environment for the 2021/22 school year, Ophea believes that the health and well-being of students, staff, and the broader school community should still remain a priority during these challenging times—and Healthy Schools Certification can help.

Ophea recognizes that implementing Healthy Schools Certification may look different for schools across Ontario and require various approaches. Ophea has developed this COVID-19 Support Resources section to provide tips on how schools can implement the 4-Step Healthy Schools Process.

As you review this information, please consider direction from public health professionals, as well as school policies and protocols relating to COVID-19. This includes any safety (e.g., physical distancing, personal protective equipment, use of physical activity equipment) and confidentiality (e.g., student privacy when meeting remotely by video) measures that your school and/or school board have put in place.

If you encounter any challenges during the school year, Ophea’s Healthy Schools Certification Team is available to answer questions you may have as you work toward your certification. Remember that we’re here to help and we want you to be successful! Connect with us by email at
