Fraser Health Authority issued a statement saying a public health risk assessment is underway and parents “may receive further instructions.”
It said staff or students who are determined to have been in close contact with the case will receive a phone call or letter from Public Health with instructions to self-isolate.
Some staff or students may be asked to self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19.
“Case and contact management for an individual case is typically completed within 48 hours of Public Health receiving notice of a confirmed case of COVID-19,” the fraser Heath notice said.
“Unless you are directed otherwise, please continue to attend school and use the daily health check supplied by your school to monitor for signs of COVID-19.”
“Please note, only Public Health can determine who is a close contact.”
