Brookswood Secondary School has recorded another COVID-19 exposure, according to the local district.
On Thursday, the Langley School District sent families of the secondary school located at 20902 37A Ave. informing them an individual within the school community had tested positive for coronavirus.
“This notice does not mean your child has been exposed to COVID-19,” wrote Gord Stewart, superintendent of Langley schools.
The infected individual was at the school on Jan. 22, according to Fraser Health.
The health authority has initiated contact tracing.
“This letter does not mean Public Health will be contacting you,” the healthy authority said. “Public Health will only contact you if you or your child was directly exposed to COVID-19.”
Fraser Health also has exposures listed for Brookswood Secondary for Jan. 19, 20 and 21.
“Notifications are removed after the 14-day incubation period has passed from date of exposure and the risk of transmission has passed,” Fraser Health said.
Our District has sent home a COVID-19 Early Notification letter to the Brookswood Secondary school community today. Thank you to staff, @Fraserhealth, and families for your support. Read on the school or District website here: https://t.co/QCmJHyZun3 #MySD35Community pic.twitter.com/aLCU5LTFYB
