The Greater Victoria School District (SD61) has reported COVID-19 exposures at two of its schools.
According to SD61, Gordon Head Middle School — located on Kenmore Rd in Victoria — experienced an exposure on May 20 and 25, 2021.
Torquay Elementary School – located on Torquay Dr in Victoria – also experienced an exposure on May 13, 17, 18, 19, and 25, 2021, according to the school district.
The school district says notification letters have been sent out to the school community. It also says if an individual may have been exposed, Island Health will contact them 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.
