Interior Health officials said the health authority posts notifications when a staff member or student attends school while infectious and there is a risk of COVID-19 spreading.

“When a school staff member or student tests positive for COVID-19, public health will notify staff and students who need to take a specific action, such as self-monitoring or isolation, as a result of a COVID-19 exposure,” said IH.
