Vancouver Coastal Health has added several more schools in Vancouver, Richmond, and North Vancouver to its school exposures page.

In Vancouver, seven schools have reported new coronavirus exposures. They include St. John’s School (from October 26 to 28), Lord Strathcona Elementary School (on October 30), Renfrew Elementary School (from October 27 to 28), Lord Tennyson Elementary School (from October 19 to 28), John Oliver Secondary School (on October 26), John Norquay Elementary School (on October 22), and Admiral Seymour Elementary School (on October 19 and 20).

In Richmond, Walter Lee Elementary is reporting potential coronavirus exposure from October 19 to 21.

In North Vancouver, Sutherland Secondary School is reporting coronavirus exposure from October 27 to 28, and Highlands Elementary School had an exposure from October 26 to 28.

Coronavirus exposures mean someone went to school in the days before receiving their positive test, and do not mean there has been confirmed transmission in schools.

Contact tracers will get in touch with close contacts directly, and anyone who does not receive a call from public health staff can go to school as normal.
