“They are self-isolating at home with support from local public health teams. Fraser Health Authority follows up with anyone potentially exposed to a confirmed case directly through contact tracing,” the district said in a statement.
The COVID-positive individual was at the school on April 12, according to Fraser Health.
“This is a general notification and does not mean you or your family have been exposed to COVID-19. The person involved has been isolated; as such, there is no chance of direct exposure at this time,” the health authority said.
This isn’t the first COVID notification the school has received this month.
Fraser Health also has exposure dates listed for Peter Ewart on April 6, 7, 8, and 9.
