A COVID-positive individual was at H.D. Stafford Middle on Feb. 26 and from March 3 to 5, according to Fraser Health.

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

A Public Health risk assessment is underway, and families may receive further instructions.

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

“Only Public Health can determine who is a close contact,” Fraser Health said.

Also, the health authority has added St. Catherine’s Elementary School in Fernridge to its list for an exposure event on March 1.
