Fifth report in less than two weeks

Another case of COVID-19 has been reported at Aldergrove Community Secondary School, the fifth in just under two weeks.

The advisory said a public health risk assessment was underway and parents may receive further instructions.

Notices for the school were previously issued on May 3, 4, 5 and 6 according to the Fraser Health Authority’s online school exposure list.

As of Saturday, May 15, 11 schools in Langley, nine in the school district and two independent schools, had recently reported COVID-19 cases.
