“The possible exposures listed… are believed to be low risk but, out of an abundance of caution, Public Health asks anyone who may have visited any of the locations listed on the specified dates and times to monitor themselves for symptoms.”
Gold’s Gym Langley was ordered close on Tuesday (May 25). A public exposure has not been listed for the site.
Meanwhile, two Langley schools have also recorded exposure events.
On Wednesday, Fraser Health notified families of Peter Ewart Middle School about a positive COVID case on campus. The following day, Thursday, families of R.E. Mountain Secondary were notified about an exposure.
A COVID-positive individual was at the schools on May 25.
“This is a general notification and does not mean you or your family have been exposed to COVID-19,” Fraser Health said.
“The person involved has been isolated; as such, there is no chance of direct exposure at this time.”
As of Friday there were 12 Langley schools on the exposure list, two of which are independent.
