“This does not mean you or your family have been exposed to COVID-19. The person involved has been isolated. Because of this, there is no chance of direct exposure at this time,” the health authority said.

Should Public Health identify any staff or student who require to isolate or monitor for symptoms of COVID-19, they will be contacted directly.

The health authority asks families to “follow current public health orders, including not gathering with anyone outside of your household, only traveling for essential purposes, and wearing a mask in all indoor public places.”

Schools are currently on winter break. Classes are scheduled to resume Jan. 5.

As of Thursday morning there were 10 Langley schools on Fraser Health’s list of school exposures.
