Greater Victoria School District (SD61) has recorded a COVID-19 exposure at one of its high schools.

Oak Bay High School — located on Cadboro Bay Rd in Oak Bay — experienced an exposure on June 9 and 10, 2021.

SD61 said in a tweet Saturday that if an individual may have been exposed, Island Health will contact them directly.

The district says notification letters have been sent to the school community.

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.
