Island Health has added a Nanaimo school to their COVID-19 exposure list.
Discover Montessori School — located on Dufferin Crescent in Nanaimo — experienced an exposure on May 4 and 5.
An exposure is defined by Island Health as a single person with a lab-confirmed COVID-19 infection who attended school during their infectious period.
Island Health says a child can continue to attend school if a parent or guardian does not receive a phone call or letter from public health.
Should a parent or guardian see a notification on Island Health’s school exposure site, it does not necessarily mean their child has been exposed to COVID-19.
