We are recommending that children (and kids at heart) stay off playground equipment at schools throughout our division for the time being, to avoid possible transmission of COVID-19.
COVID-19 can live on surfaces such as metal, plastic and aluminum for several days and could potentially be transmitted to those who come in contact with it by playing in school playgrounds and touching playground equipment that others have touched.
We are working hard to keep Chinook families updated and we support all of our communities’ efforts to flatten the curve. Thank you for helping to keep your family, friends and neighbours safe by practicing social distancing. We will all play together again!
