Meanwhile, the province this week announced it is going to reverse its new policy of not notifying all parents in a school community if there had been an exposure at their schools.
Just those who were exposed were notified directly.
Notices to all parents at schools were only being issued if there had been a cluster or outbreak.
The BC School Covid Tracker Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/BCSchoolCovidTracker/ - has been publishing notification letters.
According to that site, a notification was sent that there had been an exposure at Hawthorne Elementary in Ladner on Sept. 13.
North Delta schools Gray Elementary had an exposure Sept. 7 and Seaquam Secondary had an exposure Sept. 7, 8 and 9.
A notification letter was also recently sent to parents of students of a class at Ladner Elementary of a possible exposure on Sept. 13.
