Fraser Health has initiated contact tracing to identify any staff and students that need to self-isolate or self-monitor for symptoms and will continue to investigate the exposure at the schools.

It will only phone staff and students that public health has identified as needing to self-isolate for 14 days from when they were exposed, and may send letters to staff and students who will be asked to self-monitor for symptoms. These staff and students may continue to attend school while monitoring for symptoms.

A statement from the school district said the schools “will continue to implement the strict health and safety protocols and procedures that are in place so children and staff can continue to attend school as safely as possible.”
