COVID-19 confirmed at Delta B.C. secondary school – BC

COVID-19 has now been confirmed at three secondary schools in B.C.’s Lower Mainland.

The Delta School District, where one case was confirmed, would not say whether it’s a student or a staff member, but that the person is self-isolating at home.

That exposure happened after the new school year began.

The Fraser Health Authority said it’s working to find out how the person became infected.

A staff member at Panorama Ridge Secondary in Surrey has also tested positive, as has a person at Johnston Heights Secondary, also in Surrey.
