Island Health has added two Greater Victoria schools to their COVID-19 exposure list.
Colquitz Middle School — located on Dumeresq Street — and Tillicum Community School — located on Albina Street — recorded COVID-19 exposures on June 14, 2021.
Greater Victoria School District 61 (SD61) said on Twitter notification letters have been sent out to the school community.
SD61 says anyone who may have been exposed will be contacted by Island Health directly.
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.
