Diamond School in Surrey reporting COVID-19 exposure

INTERACTIVE TABLE: Search for schools, organize by exposure dates

*This story will be updated as the Now-Leader finds out about COVID-19 exposures in school.

The Surrey school district has hit 75 exposure notices at about 40 different schools.

Surrey school district Superintendent Jordan Tinney and the district have been tweeting out exposure notices at schools almost daily since schools reopened Sept. 8.

Meantime, there have been a handful of exposure notices at independent schools in the city.

Fraser Health created a webpage listing school exposures, including those at independent schools.

They are broken down by district and then whether it was an exposure, a cluster and an outbreak.

An exposure is a single person with a confirmed positive case who attended school during the infectious period.

A cluster is “two or more” people with positive cases who were at the school during their infectious period.

An outbreak is “multiple” people with positive cases and transmission “is likely widespread within the school setting.”
