A letter sent to parents and guardians of students at a school in Victoria warns that some people may have been exposed to COVID-19.
Island Health sent the letter to families on November 12, announcing that one member of the St. Margaret’s School community is being “investigated for COVID-19”.
According to a copy of the letter obtained by Victoria Buzz, some students and staff may have been exposed to the virus on November 6, 2020.
The letter adds that authorities have initiated contact tracing to find any students or staff that need to self-isolate or monitor themselves for symptoms of the virus.
After contact tracing has yielded results, Island Health will call anyone who may have been exposed to COVID-19.
They will then be asked to self isolate for 14 days from when they were exposed.
An exposure notice for St. Margaret’s School in Victoria has not yet been posed on the Island Health ‘school exposures’ page.
The private school located at 1080 Lucas Ave offers a mix of day school and boarding for girls only.
