All five exposure notifications are a “general notification and does not mean you or your family have been exposed to COVID-19.”

Public Health is completing a risk assessment, Fraser Health said, and further information maybe shared with families. Staff or students who are determined to have been in close contact with a case will receive instructions to self-isolate

A COVID-positive individual was at Aldergrove Community Secondary on April 26, 27 and 28; at Lynn Fripps Elementary on April 26, 27 and 28; at Walnut Grove Secondary School on April 26, 27, 28 and 29; and Alex Hope Elementary on April 27 and 28; and at R.E.
