Fraser Health has issued a four-day COVID-19 exposure notice for Seabird Island Community School.
According to the Fraser Health website, a person with COVID-19 was at the community school from Tuesday, Jan. 5 through Friday, Jan. 8.
Fraser Health defines an exposure as one person with a lab-confirmed COVID-19 infection, who attended school during their infectious period. These exposures are listed on a public website.
Following a confirmed COVID-19 case in a school, public health officers will perform contact tracing with the positive individual. In the event staff and students need to self-monitor or self-isolate, Fraser Health will be in direct contact with them.
In the past year, the Agassiz area has seen several COVID-19 exposures.
Agassiz Elementary Secondary School has had two exposure notices, one in November and another in December of last year. The Fraser Cascade School District, which does not govern the Seabird Island Community School, saw a total of six exposures since the start of the pandemic.
Anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19 should self-isolate and get tested as soon as possible.
