The Nanaimo-Ladysmith School District says Nanaimo District Secondary School has experienced a COVID-19 exposure.

The district said Monday night the potential exposure dates are Dec. 2 and 4, adding Island Health is currently contact tracing.

On it’s school exposures page, Island Health added three other Nanaimo schools as of Monday morning: Randerson Ridge Elementary, Wellington Secondary and Forest Park Elementary.

Carihi Secondary School in Campbell River was also included.

According to Island Health, exposure is defined as a single person with a lab-confirmed COVID-19 infection who attended school during their infectious period.

Island Health notes that if a parent or guardian sees a notification on the health authority’s school exposure site, it does not necessarily mean their child has been exposed to COVID-19.

Island Health outlines that Public Health members work with the school and school district to ensure close contacts are notified directly and provided specific guidance.

If a parent or guardian does not receive a phone call or letter from Public Health, a child can continue to attend school, Island Health notes.
