Kate Southwell has been preparing her four-year-old son for his first day of school all summer.
She has had him practise wearing a mask for extended periods of time and emphasized the importance of washing his hands before his first day at a school in Toronto’s east end. She’s also looked through the Toronto District School Board’s list of schools to see what kind of ventilation system her son’s building will have as COVID-19 infection rates in Ontario once again rise.
