COVID-19: Langley schools on exposure list dip to 20

Langley Secondary School is the latest to report a COVID case

Langley School District reported no new COVID-19 exposures on Thursday, but exposures at two local schools were recently added to Fraser Health’s exposure list.

On Wednesday, the Langley School District notified families of the secondary that an individual within the school community had tested positive for coronavirus.

“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.”

However, a Public Health risk assessment is underway and staff and students may receive further instructions to isolate or monitor for symptoms of COVID-19.
