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, a “functional” closure or 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. Fraser Health has added that the cases “may be linked to school-based transmission.”

A “functional” closure refers to a voluntary closure of a school, “either entire or in part, due to operational limitations as a result of a number of staff and/or students needing to self-isolate at home.”

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