COVID-19: 24 Langley schools on Fraser Health exposure list

Four more notifications letters were issued by the district Monday

Four more COVID-19 notification letters were sent out to families of three Langley schools on Monday.

Langley School District sent two letters to families of Aldergrove Community Secondary, and one to each of North Otter Elementary and Simonds Elementary schools.

All letters are considered a “general notification and does not mean you or your family have been exposed to COVID-19,” according to Fraser Health.

A Public Health risk assessment is underway and those who are determined to have been in close contact with the case will receive further instructions to isolate.

“Only Public Health can determine who is a close contact,” Fraser Health said.
