Mission, along with Abbotsford, are experiencing an all-time high in the number of school exposures recorded this month, according to data from Fraser Health’s website.
A total of seven Mission schools have recorded COVID-19 exposures since April 1.
Hatzic Middle had exposures on April 1 and 6; Albert McMahon had exposures on April 6, 7, 8, 9, 13 and 14; Ecole Mission Senior Secondary on April 1, 6, 8, 9, 12; West Heights Elementary and Cherry Hill Elementary on April 8, 9; Edwin S. Richards on April 9, 13; and Mission Central Elementary on April 16.
In Abbotsford, 24 of the city’s 46 public schools have listed exposures over the last two weeks, with many recording daily exposures, in some cases for five days in a row.
All the school exposures across the entire Fraser Health region are currently listed as “exposures,” meaning one person attended the school while they were infected, and its not believed any transmission occurred within schools.
Many schools under the health authority are showing a string of continuous exposures across multiple days, similar to patterns in Abbotsford.
