The COVID-positive individual was at the elementary school on Feb. 16 and 23, according to Fraser Health.

“This is a general notification and does not mean you or your family have been exposed to COVID-19,” the health authority said. “The person involved has been isolated; as such, there is no chance of direct exposure at this time.”

As of Monday there are five Langley schools on Fraser Health’s COVID-19 exposure list. Schools actively being monitored are Blacklock Fine Arts Elementary, H.D. Stafford Middle, Langley Secondary, R.E. Mountain Secondary and Lynn Fripps Elementary schools.
