A Langley Shoppers Drug Mart and two schools have recorded new COVID-19 exposure events.
Langley School District sent a letter to families of H.D. Stafford Middle on Monday, Feb. 22 and Langley Secondary on Sunday, Feb 21, to inform them a member of each school community has tested positive for COVID-19.
“They are self-isolating at home with support from local public health teams,” the district said. “Fraser Health Authority follows up with anyone potentially exposed to a confirmed case directly through contact tracing.”
An infected individual was at H.D. Stafford on Feb. 17 and at Langley Secondary on Feb. 17, according to Fraser Health.
“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.”
Parents are asked to continue to send their children to school and to monitor them daily for symptoms of COVID-19.
As of Tuesday there are 13 Langley schools on Fraser Health’s COVID-19 school exposure list.
