Interior Health will determine the close contacts of the person or people infected and contact anyone who may have been exposed to instruct them to self-isolate. Only families with students at risk of developing COVID-19 will be contacted.

As of Tuesday, the two schools are the only ones with exposure notices in the Interior Health region.

Following its one-week spring break, classes resumed in SD73 last week. Other schools in the region did not resume until Monday.
