COVID-19 exposures on three school buses in Chilliwack

Exposure dates range from Nov. 13 to 19, according to letters sent out by Fraser Health

There have been multiple COVID-19 exposures on three separate school buses within the Chilliwack School District, plus exposures at three schools.

According to letters sent out by Fraser Health on Nov. 26, the exposure dates for the school buses range from Nov. 13 to 19 on buses #4, #6 and #28.

“If your child took the school bus on the above dates, there is a chance that your child may have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus,” the letter reads.

School bus #4 exposure notice: Nov. 13 from 2:45 p.m. to 3:45 p.m., Nov. 17 from 2:45 p.m. to 3:45 p.m.

School bus #6 exposure notice: Nov. 17 from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., Nov. 18 from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., Nov. 19 from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.

School bus #28 exposure notice: Nov. 13 from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m., Nov. 17 from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m.

Children who were on the buses can continue to attend school and take the school bus, but are being advised by Fraser Health to self-monitor for symptoms.

Within almost that exact same timeframe, there were also exposures at three Chilliwack schools: Chilliwack secondary on Nov. 17; G.W. Graham on Nov. 16, 17 and 18; and Little Mountain elementary on Nov. 19 and 20.
