As of December 6, Island Health was working to complete contact tracing.
Campbell River’s Carihi Secondary School reported a potential exposure between November 30 to December 2 on Saturday.
They said that Island Health had contacted all potentially affected families by the end of the day on December 5.
Anyone who did not hear from public health did not come in close contact with the infected individual.
All exposure events are listed on the Island Health website.
The health authority says that parents who have not been contacted by officials should rest assured their children have not had a high-risk exposure, and can continue to attend school as long as they are not experiencing symptoms.
