Other schools with current exposures include NorKam secondary, which saw exposures on March 22 and March 23, Westmount elementary (March 23 to March 25), Brocklehurst Middle School (March 31) and Westsyde secondary (March 31 and April 1).

In each instance, Interior Health will conduct contact tracing and will determine if anyone was in contact with those who tested positive for COVID-19 while they were infectious.

The health authority will also determine if anyone in the school community is a close contact who is required to self-isolate.

Those contacted by Interior Health are asked to follow advice given. If you are not contacted by the health authority, it has been determined that your child is not at risk of developing COVID-19.

Two exposure days were also reported at Logan Lake elementary, on March 29 and March 30.

Kamloops' current list of exposures is less than what was seen earlier this year, but Kelowna currently has 12 exposures listed, all occurring in late March or early April. Vernon has two current exposures and one school is affected in Salmon Arm.
