Potential COVID Exposure at PCS

PCS Community,

We have been made aware by a member of our school community that they have tested positive for COVID-19. We will be working with the local health authority to determine if there is any risk to other members of our school community or if any additional steps are required. We will follow the health authority’s guidance. The local health authority will connect directly with any individuals who may have been exposed with further instructions. If you are contacted by the health authority, please follow their advice carefully. If you have any symptoms, please stay home and follow the guidance from the BC Centre for Disease Control.

Please continue to follow the strict protocols and procedures that we have in place, including, hand washing, wearing masks in class, not seating students facing each other, and not engaging in activities that require prolonged face-to-face contact.

We ask for your patience, and we will communicate out additional information as it becomes available.

As per Northern Health protocol staff and students must continue with the Daily Health Check. If they have symptoms they are to must stay home.

You can get a paper copy of the Daily Health Check from here:
