N.S. NDP say questions remain as students return to school


Students are back to school today, but the Nova Scotia NDP say a number of questions remain unanswered by the Liberal government.

Education spokesperson Claudia Chender says it's still unknown what will happen when there are cases of COVID-19 in a school.

She says that parents and guardians need a clear understanding of what will trigger quarantine of a class, school, or region.

Chender also says government needs to answer what will cause the move to a distance learning model for high schools.

The NDP is continuing to call for paid sick days for all workers and expedited testing for students.

Chender says parents need to know how they're supposed to manage time off from work to deal with testing and self-isolation if their child is sick.
