Vancouver Coastal Health has flagged seven more COVID-19 exposures at schools in the past week.

In Richmond, James Gilmore Elementary had an exposure on December 4 and 7; Thomas Kidd Elementary had one on November 30, December 1, and December 3; and Hugh McRoberts Secondary had one on December 1, 2, and 4.

In Vancouver, King George Secondary had exposure on December 4, John Henderson Elementary also had an exposure on the same day. Crofton House School, a private school in Kerrisdale, is also reporting exposures on December 3 and 4.

North Vancouver’s Carson Graham Secondary is reporting a new exposure from December 1 to 4.

Exposures mean someone showed up to school while contagious, and do not necessarily mean everyone at the school was exposed to the virus. Contact tracers will phone the patient’s close contacts individually, and anyone who doesn’t receive a call can attend school as normal.
