Interior Health has reported potential COVID-19 exposures at five schools in the East Kootenay, three of which are in Cranbrook.

IH officials said public health will notify staff and students who need to take a specific action when someone tests positive for COVID-19.

These actions include self-monitoring or isolation.

“Interior Health will post-exposure notifications when a staff member or student attended school while infectious and there is a possible risk of exposure to COVID-19,” said IH officials.

While three of the exposures are in Cranbrook, there is also one in Kimberley and one in Invermere.
