Langley School District is reporting an individual at Walnut Grove Secondary as tested positive for COVID-19.
On Sunday evening the local district sent a letter to families of the school located at 8919 Walnut Grove Dr. that a person within the school community had tested positive for coronavirus.
“If you are receiving this letter, it means your child may have been at the school during this time; however, the exposure did not take place in their cohort or class(es),” said Gord Stewart, superintendent of Langley schools.
The infected individual was at the school on Jan. 28, according to Fraser Health.
Public Health has initiated contact tracing
“This letter does not mean Public Health will be contacting you,” the health authority said. “Public Health will only contact you if you or your child was directly exposed to COVID-19.”
