In both cases, Fraser Health Authority said it has initiated contact tracing to rapidly identify any staff and students that need to self-isolate or self-monitor for symptoms.

It will continue to investigate the exposure at the school, and will only phone staff and students that public health has identified as needing to self-isolate for 14 days from when they were exposed.
