Dr. Eileen de Villa, Toronto's medical officer of health answers your COVID-19-related questions.

In her weekly briefing, Dr. Eileen de Villa, Toronto's medical officer of health, said parents should teach their kids how to wash their hands, practice physical distancing, and wear their mask.

De Villa: You might have noticed that as I delivered my remarks this week and talked about future COVID-19 activity, I use terms like resurgence or future COVID-19 activity rather than a second wave. And that's because I think when we talk about a second wave, you think about a single peak, a single big wave of activity that then subsides. And that is one potential scenario for future COVID-19 activity.

CP24: We've seen pictures this week of some Toronto District School Board classrooms where desks aren't effectively spaced out. In other scenarios, windows just simply don't open in the school. How concerned are you when you see pictures like that? As a public health officer, what goes through your mind when you hear and see that?

reaction between people, there is just a higher risk of COVID-19 transmission. The best thing we can do is minimize the amount of disease transmitted in our community by keeping up our public health measures, by definition, that will reduce the risk within our schools. De Villa: It depends on how they're characterizing their home address. So generally, it's where your home address is. Suppose you list your home address when you have your test as your university residence location or apartment. In that case, that's how things will be managed through that particular local public health department. It all depends on what you list as your address. That's how we determine how things are assigned to local public health units.

Why don't the teachers move from classroom to classroom ,instead of all the students. Less people movement=less transmissions

something off about this one too

Why has TPH not said that the back to school plan is not safe enough? Why have they not called out the provincial government? 27 JK/SK kids in one room is not safe.

If I wear a mask during sex would that be considered role playing?

Bet she didn't answer why Sick kids don't think kids should wear masks to school?

No mask No Sex. Got it.

Hopefully it’s not to reinforce what Dr. Tam said about wearing a mask during sex.

ya'all just have to make sure she is sorta kinda AWAKE

Is the city of Toronto required the TDSB to follow the 2 meter distancing?
