Among those frequently in schools or other setting who might have direct contact with staff or students, like visitors, volunteers, contractors, other professionals and bus drivers, more than 91 per cent are fully vaccinated (765 of 838). One person has a medical exemption, 40 have not yet submitted their status and 24 are not vaccinated.
