There were three more COVID-19 exposure at Langley school announced Monday.

In addition to the one announced earlier today at Brookswood Secondary, the school district announced exposures at Peterson Roadand Richard Bulpitt Elementaries.

A letter was sent to Brookswood parents on Monday, Nov. 23 alerting them that someone in the school community had tested positive for the coronavirus.

Those at risk of exposure to the person will be contacted by Fraser Health directly, says the letter. Calls usually come within 24 to 48 hours, said the letter from Gord Stewart, Langley School District’s superintendent of schools.

“Some of you may be wondering who is responsible for the case, what class, or cohort is impacted,” Brookswood principal John Pusic wrote in an email to parents. “Please note, for privacy reasons, we cannot give out further details.”

Pusic said the school and district were continuing to take guidance from Fraser Health.

Brookswood previously had a COVID exposure in October.

The most recent incident at Brookswood connects back to an individual at the school on Nov. 9, 10, 12, and 13.

In the meantime, the exposures at both Peterson Road and Richard Bulpitt Elementaries connects with an infected individual at the schools on Nov. 16.

These exposures are the latest in a string of alerts to parents across the district.
