There are currently nine active exposure notices in Chilliwack area schools, with seven in public schools and two in independent schools.
The exposure notices are coming to parents sooner than they were coming prior to the Christmas break, sometimes only two days after the exposure event. Prior to Christmas, some exposure notices were being sent out close to or even after the 14-day incubation period.
As of Sunday, Jan. 24, the schools with notices are:
Chilliwack Middle School: Jan. 15 and 18
Chilliwack Secondary: Jan. 13, 14 and 15
