Over 90 per cent of staff have declared and over 90 per cent are fully vaccinated according to an update at the Prince Albert Catholic School Division board of education’s regular meeting on Monday.

Director of education Lorel Trumier credited the staff for the numbers, which were reported earlier in November.

“Our staff have been super supportive of moving forward with (everything),” Trumier said. “Whether it’s proof of vaccination or moving to a monitoring process, they have really done a great job understanding the elements that we are trying to put in place.”

According to a memo, as of Nov. 19, 95 per cent of staff have responded to the Declaration of Proof of Vaccination requirement.

Of that percentage of staff 98 per cent of respondents are fully vaccinated.

Staff were given until Thursday, Dec.2 as a deadline. Unvaccinated staff or staff that have indicated non-disclosure will begin using a monitoring of negative test and symptom monitoring effective Dec. 6.

“Again, its one of those times where I think our staff are doing what they need to do in our educational community to support the safety around them and the students that are in their schools,” she added.
