A COVID-positive individual was at D.W. Poppy Secondary on March 9 and 10, according to the health authority.

“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.”

Unless directed otherwise parents are asked to continue to send their children to school once classes resume and to monitor them daily for symptoms of COVID-19.
