A “self-monitoring notification” letter to staff and parents from the Fraser Health Authority was posted by the B.C. School Covid Tracker Facebook page.

Anyone receiving the letter was advised to “closely monitor” children in their care for COVID-19 symptoms until 14 days after the last exposure, until Sept. 27th or 29th.

Symptoms include cough, fever or chills, loss of sense of smell or taste, difficulty breathing, sore throat, loss of appetite, extreme fatigue or tiredness, headache, body aches, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea.

Any staff or children showing even mild symptoms were advised to isolate away from others “as quickly as possible,” and get tested for COVID-19.

Fraser Health declined to comment on the posted message, citing privacy reasons.
