Families are being advised of COVID-19 exposure at three Nanaimo schools.
Nanaimo Ladysmith Public Schools posted on social media Monday night that there was potential COVID-19 exposure at Rock City Elementary School on Jan. 27. The day before, School District 68 advised of COVID-19 exposure at Bayview Elementary School on Jan. 27 and Jan. 29.
Also Sunday, Snuneymuxw First Nation and SD6868 sent a letter notifying parents and guardians about COVID-19 exposure at Qwam Qwum Stuwixwulh School Jan. 28. Families are being asked not to send their students to Qwam Qwum Stuwixwulh Monday or Tuesday, Feb. 1-2, while a “deep clean” of the facility takes place.
The school district advises people to refer to Island Health’s school exposures web page for more information.
“We’re doing everything we can to make sure your children are safe, to make sure that the people that work with your children are safe and we’re going to keep doing that until we get out from behind COVID-19,” said Adrian Dix, B.C. health minister, at a press conference earlier this month.
