Vancouver Coastal Health added three Vancouver elementary schools to its list of institutions with coronavirus exposures Monday.

Exposures mean someone went to school in the days before they received a positive coronavirus test. Two of the latest exposures at school were at Catholic school and one was a public school.

Our Lady of Perpetual Help on the city’s west side lists its potential exposure dates as October 19 to 22.

Over in North Vancouver, Holy Trinity Elementary School had someone show up while contagious from October 19 to 22.

On the University of British Columbia’s campus, University Hill Elementary had an infected individual at school on October 20.

Contact tracers are working to get in touch with close contacts directly. Students who don’t receive a call from public health staff can go to school as usual.
