Vancouver Coastal Health has added new coronavirus exposures to its public alerts page after individuals from schools in Vancouver and Richmond tested positive for coronavirus recently.

A school exposure means the infected person went to school in the days before receiving their positive test.

Britannia Secondary in East Vancouver is reporting potential coronavirus exposures on October 16, 21, and 22.

Vancouver College, a private boys-only Catholic school in Shaughnessy, is reporting potential coronavirus exposures from October 20 to 22.
