Vancouver School Exposures – Updated on January 25, 2021

As more places in the country continue to reopen, kids are starting to make their way back to school as well. Parents are naturally concerned about what schools are doing for COVID-19 and kids. All schools in the greater Vancouver region have dedicated safety plans to look after students’ health.

To develop a greater understanding of the term, exposure refers to a single person with a lab-confirmed COVID-19 infection, and they attend school. A cluster refers to two or more individuals with lab-confirmed COVID-19 infection, who attend school during their infectious period. Lastly, an outbreak refers to multiple individuals with lab-confirmed COVID-19 infections.

In the case of a COVID-19 school exposures alert, there’s no need to take any action until the parents receive contact from public health or the school itself. If a child faces direct exposure, the public health unit will notify parents regarding the situation and what actions they should take to take care of the child.

There’s a rigorous protocol in place to ensure that the entire school doesn’t have to shut down in the case of an exposure. These protocols are present to help manage COVID-19 school exposures as smoothly as possible, without disrupting the academic year. Here’s a list of all the COVID 19 school exposures in Great Vancouver (updated January 25, 2021):

While the initial implementation of the COVID-19 school exposure system was shaky, these protocols are necessary to help ensure that the transition back to schools is done as smoothly as possible.

Parents can feel more comfortable when they’re fully in the know about the status of COVID-19 in their child’s school. While there are still arguments to be had about whether or not it’s safe to reopen the school system, there’s no doubt that the implementation of such protocols is necessary to ensure children’s safety.
