23 Langley schools on COVID exposure list after latest alerts

Five independent schools are on Fraser Health’s exposure list

A “general notification” for COVID-19 exposures was issued to two Langley schools on Tuesday.

Langley School District notified families of Nicomekl Elementary and Aldergrove Community Secondary schools that a person within each school community had tested positive for coronavirus.

“This is a general notification and does not mean you or your family have been exposed to COVID-19,” Fraser Health said. “The person involved has been isolated; as such, there is no chance of direct exposure at this time.”

A COVID-positive individual was at Nicomekl Elementary on May 4, 5, and 6; and at Aldergrove Community Secondary on May 5 and 6, according to the health authority.

Aldergrove Community also has exposures listed for April 28, 29, 30, and May 3.

A Public Health risk assessment is underway and staff and students may receive further instructions to isolate or monitor for symptoms of COVID-19.

Unless directed otherwise, parents are asked to continue to send their children to school and to monitor them daily for symptoms of COVID-19.

“Public Health staff works closely with the school and school district throughout the case and contact management process. Please note, only Public Health can determine who is a close contact.”

As of Wednesday there were 23 Langley schools on Fraser Health’s school exposure list, of which five were independent.
