A message from Langley school supt. Gord Stewart advised that “if you are receiving this letter, it means your child may have been at the school during this time; however, the exposure did not take place in their cohort or class(es).

If your child was exposed, you will receive an additional letter providing more information.”

Fraser Health said it is taking the following actions:

“We work to trace the person’s contacts to find out how the person got infected and who they were in close contact with.

We investigate the exposure at the school so we can quickly find out if any staff or students need to isolate (self-isolate) or monitor for signs of COVID-19 (self-monitor).

We phone or send letters to the staff and students who were in close contact with the person and need to self-isolate.

We might send letters to some staff and students and ask them to self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19.

This letter does not mean Public Health will be contacting you. Public Health will only contact you if you or your child was directly exposed to COVID-19.
