A COVID-19 exposure at Barriere elementary has been confirmed by school administrators, who say students may have been exposed on Jan. 5, Jan. 7 and Jan. 8.
"We are supporting Interior Health Authority as they undertake contact tracing to determine if any other members of our school community were in contact with the person who tested positive for COVID-19, and if any additional steps are required," reads a letter sent to parents by Barriere elementary principal Tiffany Hawkins.
"We are following the protocol established for these circumstances."
The letter concludes by asking parents to continue daily health checks for their children.
Meanwhile, exposures at Barriere secondary have had additional dates added to the list of school exposures in Interior Health.
The exposures now span the week of Jan. 5 to Jan. 8 at that school.
Other recent school exposures in the Kamloops area include Arthur Hatton elementary (Jan. 5 to Jan. 8) and South Kamloops secondary (Jan. 7 and Jan. 8).
The first school exposure in SD73 was in November, with others following in December.
