Two Langley schools are each reporting two new COVID-19 exposure events.
On Tuesday evening the Langley School District sent a letter to families of James Kennedy Elementary (9060 212 St.) and Langley Secondary ( 21405 56 Ave.) schools informing them an individual within each school community has tested positive for coronavirus.
A COVID-positive individual was at the elementary school on Jan. 27 and 28, and at the secondary school on those same dates, according to Fraser Health.
“This does not mean you or your family have been exposed to COVID-19. The person involved has been isolated. Because of this, there is no chance of direct exposure at this time,” the health authority said.
Our District has sent home a COVID-19 Early Notification letter to the James Kennedy Elementary and Langley Secondary school communities today. Thank you to staff, @FraserHealth, and families for your support. Read here: https://t.co/2KlQAPJS34 #MySD35Community pic.twitter.com/XUvNCw9DrV

Public Health has initiated contract tracing.
“Public Health will only contact you if you or your child was directly exposed to COVID-19,” they said.
Parents are asked to continue to send their children to school and monitor them daily for symptoms of COVID-19.
Langley Secondary also had an exposure event on Jan. 22.
There are now 8 schools in Langley on the exposure list, including one independent school, as of Wednesday morning.
