Amid the growing global concerns of COVID-19, Agriculture in the Classroom-Saskatchewan (AITC-SK) is providing details of our response. The health and safety of students, teachers, volunteers and our staff are our top priority and of utmost importance to us.
At this time, the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) has assessed the public health risk associated with COVID-19 as low for the general population in Canada, but this could change quickly. In response, AITC-SK and our partners are in discussions pertaining to the safety risk of current and upcoming programs such as Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month, Garden EXperience, and more.
Ag in the City has been cancelled and we are suspending programming in all Saskatoon Public Schools, in alignment with their proactive safety measures. As further decisions are made, we will update our website with new information.
Public Health Officials continue to reassess the national and provincial public health risk as the situation evolves, and as such AITC-SK will continue to monitor these sources and update our website with new information and response changes.
Saskatchewan has a dedicated page to keep members of the public informed. Please visit www.saskatchewan.ca/coronavirus for updated information as it becomes available.
