“My colleagues and I have been gathering common concerns and questions raised by local families over the past few weeks, and we wanted to create this opportunity to come together and address them as a community,” said Dr. Salvaterra. “Now that our school families have experienced what it’s like to have students return to the classroom, we believe this is a good time to answer these questions about public health measures.”

Parents and caregivers with public health-related questions about schools are encouraged to email them in advance to so Dr. Salvaterra can address them during her presentation.

Dr. Salvaterra will share a 15-minute slide show covering the most frequently asked questions Peterborough Public Health has received since schools reopened, followed by an opportunity for viewers to ask questions through the online chat function.
