Liberal Leader Steven Del Duca says the best way to get back to normal is to make classrooms safer.

He says he would add COVID-19 to the list of nine other vaccines on the school list and would require all front-line educators to be immunized.

But Del Duca says current exemptions will continue to apply.

Parents can exempt their children from the school vaccination requirements through either a statement of medical exemption, or for reasons of conscience or religious beliefs.

About 35% of children aged 5-11 have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine, while 93% of teens aged 12-17 have received two doses.
