On Tuesday evening the Langley School District sent letters to families of Alex Hope Elementary, Brookswood Secondary, and H.D. Stafford Middle schools informing them an individual within each school community had tested positive or coronavirus.
“If your child was exposed, you will receive an additional letter providing more information,” said Gord Stewart, superintendent of Langley schools.
A COVID-positive individual was at Alex Hope on Feb. 5; there were also reports at Brookswood Secondary on Feb. 5; and at H.D. Stafford on Feb. 4 and 5, according to Fraser Health.
Public Health has initiated contact tracing.
“Public Health will only contact you if you or your child was directly exposed to COVID-19,” they said.
