There has been a potential COVID-19 exposure at Rayleigh elementary in Kamloops.
Interior Health said the possible exposure occurred on Dec. 17 and Dec. 18, the final two days of class before winter break began.
It is the fifth school in the Kamloops-Thompson school district to have potential exposures, with the other four alerts ending with no further cases arising from the person or persons who tested positive for the disease.
Interior Health will determine close contacts connected to the person or persons when they were potentially infectious. Those people will be told to self-isolate for 14 days, while staff and students who do not receive a phone call or letter from Interior Health are advised to continue to monitor themselves for COVID-19 symptoms using the BC COVID-19 Health Assessment Tool.
School exposures are removed from Interior Health’s online list and considered over after 14 days without any new cases being reported.
The potential exposure at Rayleigh follows earlier potential COVID-19 exposures at Aberdeen elementary, Kamloops School of the Arts, Westsyde secondary and NorKam senior secondary.
Students are on the final week of winter break and are scheduled to return to school on Monday, Jan. 4.
