Five local schools and the Langley Superstore are the latest to record COVID-19 exposures.
On Sunday, families of Alex Hope Elementary, Lynn Fripps Elementary, R.E. Mountain Secondary, Walnut Grove Secondary, and Aldergrove Community Secondary schools were sent a letter from the Langley School District informing them an individual within each school community had tested positive for COVID-19.
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
