Fraser Health declared a coronavirus outbreak Monday evening at a dance school in Chilliwack.

The health authority said in a news release that 26 individuals from Capella Dance Academy have so far tested positive.

“Case and contact management is ongoing,” Fraser Health said. “Those identified as cases and close contacts have been instructed to self-isolate.”

The dance school voluntarily closed on October 28, and public health staff will inspect the site to help the academy “strengthen their COVID-19 mitigation strategies.”

Public health staff are also working with nearby school districts to track contacts students may have had at their academic schools.
