A public exposure is issued when Fraser Health is unable to reach or identify all individuals potentially exposed.

The public exposures listed are from 9:50 a.m. to 8 p.m. on May 12 and 13; 9:50 a.m. to 6 p.m. on May 14; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on May 15; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on May 16; and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on May 17.

Meanwhile, two Langley schools have also recorded exposure events.

On Wednesday, Fraser Health notified families of Peter Ewart Middle School about a positive COVID case on campus. The following day, Thursday, families of R.E. Mountain Secondary were notified about an exposure.

A COVID-positive individual was at the schools on May 25.

“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.”

As of Friday there were 12 Langley schools on the exposure list, two of which are independent.
