COVID school exposures in Mission continue to flare up into October

7 of 19 public schools have had exposures since Oct. 1

COVID exposures at Mission schools have continued to flare up into October.

Since Oct.1 , seven of 19 Mission schools have had exposures, nearly the same number that experienced exposures during the first three weeks of September.

Superintendent Angus Wilson said last week that exposure notifications from Fraser Health this month have been less frequent than last, recalling receiving nine in one day in September.

Three of the schools had exposure streaks carry over into October from September, according to Fraser Health’s website.

Silverdale Elementary and Windebank Elementary had continuous exposures from Oct. 4 to 8, both having been flagged for the majority of days in the previous two weeks.

Windebank shut down for a week on Oct. 14, due to staffing shortages caused by staff having to self isolate.
