In a notice sent to all Trustees, Superintendents, and Secretary-Treasurers the BCSTA provided an update in regards to the notice of liability letters that were received by many school districts and boards of education.
The BCSTA consulted with Harris & Co. to provide the update. The update concluded that "there is very little risk that school districts would be generally liable for having vaccination clinics in schools or for requiring students to wear masks". This was in response to legal threats that stated "it is unlawful for the district to 'practice medicine' by having vaccine clinics at schools and requiring students to get vaccinated" and "it is unlawful to require students to wear masks in school".
Any law or legal action quoted in the notice of liability letters were deemed either not applicable to the jurisdiction of British Columbia or represent an inaccurate legal summary of the laws cited.
