On Tuesday, the Surrey School District said that it notified the families of students at 34 different schools regarding potential exposure to COVID-19 over the Family Day long weekend.

The schools include:

In light of these most recent exposures, Fraser Health notes that notification of exposure “does not mean your child has been exposed to COVID-19,” and adds that “no action is required unless you are contacted by Public Health or are otherwise directed by school officials.”

Those who do not receive a phone call or letter from Public Health should have their children continue to attend school and monitor for COVID-19 symptoms daily using the BC COVID-19 Health Assessment Tool.

The health authority notes that it will contact families directly in the case of any school exposure involving their child.

In the meantime, parents are being reminded that if they or their children develop any symptoms of COVID-19, they should “seek testing and then self-isolate.”

BC health officials are scheduled to give a live COVID-19 update on Tuesday afternoon.

The announcement will include several reporting periods. It follows a total of 445 new coronavirus cases on Friday, bringing the total number of recorded cases in the province to 72,750.
