Vancouver Coastal Health added six more schools to its COVID-19 exposures page on Thursday.

In Vancouver, Dr. H. N. MacCorkindale Elementary had exposure on November 26, and Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic School had one on November 26, 27, and 30.

Richmond’s Maple Lane Elementary also had an exposure on November 20, November 24 to 25, and again on December 1.

Three West Vancouver Schools reported new exposures. Westcot Elementary had one on November 26 to 26, West Vancouver Secondary had one on November 26 to 27, and Irwin Park Elementary had one on November 26 to 27.

These exposures mean someone came to school while infectious, and do not necessarily mean everyone at the school was exposed. Contact tracers are notifying the patients’ close contacts directly.
