“This exposure alert is a general notice that someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 has been at school,” said Gord Stewart, superintendent of schools.

“These notices do not mean that your child has been exposed to COVID-19,” he added.

The health authority said it has initiated contract tracing and any staff or students that need to self-isolate or self-monitor for symptoms will be contacted by Fraser Health directly.
