Belmont Secondary School (3041 Langford Lake Rd, BC, V9B 0L9) COVID-19 General Notification
Dear Parents, Guardians, Families and Staff,
This letter is to provide notification that a member of your school community has tested positive for COVID-19. They are isolating and are being followed by Island Health.
Dates of potential exposure in the school community occurred:
April 1, 2021
Island Health is completing contact tracing to identify any staff or students that need to self-isolate or self-monitor for symptoms.
Receiving this letter does not mean you or your child has been exposed to COVID-19.
The intent of this letter is to share information with the school community and advise you on next steps being taken by Island Health.
HOW IS COVID-19 SPREAD?
COVID-19 is primarily spread by the respiratory droplets an infected person produces when they breathe, cough, sneeze, talk, or sing. If you are in close contact with an infected person for a prolonged period of time, the virus can enter your body if droplets get into your throat, nose, or eyes.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Phone calls or letters will be sent to staff and students that Island Health has identified as needing to self-isolate for 14 days from when they were exposed.
If you do not receive a phone call or letter, continue to monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 and seek testing and self-isolate if symptoms begin.
For privacy reasons, we cannot give out any specific details on the COVID-19 exposure other than the information provided above.
Yours in health,
