Two COVID exposure notices have been issued for Richard Bulpitt Elementary School at 20965 77A Ave.

A notice from the school district on Friday, March 12, said Fraser Health Authority has confirmed members of the Richard Bulpitt Elementary School community have tested positive for COVID-19.

“They are self-isolating at home with support from local public health teams.”

Fraser Health Authority released a statement that someone with COVID-19 was at Richard Bullpit Elementary on March 8, 9 and 10.

A separate statement said someone with COVID-19 was at the school on March 5.

“This is a general notification and does not mean you or your family have been exposed to COVID-19,” the FHA notice said.

“The person involved has been isolated; as such, there is no chance of direct exposure at this time.”

A public health risk assessment is underway.
