According to the FHA’s most current list posted Monday, Brooke Elementary had an exposure event Dec. 14, 15, 16 and 17.
Other schools currently on the list include Annieville Elementary (Dec. 9 and 10), Delview Secondary (Dec. 7, 8, 9 and 10), Devon Gardens Elementary (Dec. 7 and 8), Heath Traditional Elementary (Dec. 10) and Seaquam Secondary (Dec. 7, 9, 10, 10, 11).

The Ministry of Education today said B.C. school districts are investing in additional staff time and cleaning to keep schools safe and support student learning with the first instalment of federal funding for B.C.'s K-12 COVID-19 response.
School districts hired 1,868 new staff, purchased almost 2.5 million pieces of personal protective equipment, installed or upgraded more than 5,800 hand hygiene or washing stations and upgraded 45,283 air or ventilation filters.
"School is the best place for most students to learn, and it's so important for their social and emotional well-being," said Jennifer Whiteside, Minister of Education, in a news release. "We know this funding is making a tremendous difference for students and staff, keeping our schools open and supporting our safety plans during the pandemic."
The federal government announced $242.4 million in one-time funding for B.C.'s K-12 COVID-19 response, with the first half - $121.2 million - allocated between September and the end of the calendar year.
The ministry allocated $101.1 million to public school districts and $8 million for independent schools at the beginning of the school year and $12.1 million in federal funding was reserved for emerging needs.
