Fraser Health has issued a COVID-19 exposure alert for D.W. Poppy Secondary School in Langley.

On Thursday evening, the Langley School District issued a letter to the families of the secondary school explaining the notice was to inform the community, but it “does not mean that your child has been exposed to COVID-19.”
