Langley School District is reporting COVID-19 cases for a fifth straight day.
On Sunday, the school district notified families of Langley Fine Arts and West Langley Elementary schools that a person within each school community had tested positive for coronavirus.
“They are self-isolating at home with support from local public health teams,” the district said in a statement. “Fraser Health Authority follows up with anyone potentially exposed to a confirmed case directly through contact tracing.”
A COVID-positive individual was at Langley Fine Arts on March 30; and at West Langley Elementary on March 29, 30 and 31, Fraser Health reported.
“This is a general notification and does not mean you or your family have been exposed to COVID-19,” the health authority said. “The person involved has been isolated; as such, there is no chance of direct exposure at this time.”
Our District has sent home a COVID-19 notification letter to the Langley Fine Arts and West Langley Elementary school communities today. Thank you to staff, @FraserHealth, and families for your support. Read here: https://t.co/mCh1FbikDf #MySD35Community pic.twitter.com/hfQLu92m1R
