A case of COVID-19 was recently confirmed within the Boundary School district, Acting Superintendent Anna Lautard told The Gazette Friday, April 9.
The infected person was aboard a district school bus operating between Greenwood and Midway last Tuesday and Wednesday, Lautard wrote in a signed letter Thursday, April 8.
Those identified by IH as having been potentially exposed to the virus were then told they must self-isolate. The school district has asked IH’s Rapid Response team to “review our existing protocols,” Lautard said.
Lautard declined further comment, citing privacy issues.
IH’s latest available data shows regional cases which were confirmed last week, between March 28 and April 3. Those numbers show three active cases in Grand Forks and no active cases in the Kettle Valley.
Boundary school children are required to wear face masks at all times during school schools, except when eating or drinking or when seated at their desks, according to a school district notice dated Feb. 5.
