SURREY (NEWS 1130) — An entire class in Surrey will need to self isolate because they may have been exposed to COVID-19.
The school district’s superintendent posted the notice about Rosemary Heights Elementary on Twitter Tuesday afternoon after someone at the school from Wednesday to Friday last week tested positive.
Students and staff of that one class will be contacted directly.
“Please note that only one class is being asked to self-isolate. All other classes should continue to school and monitor for symptoms compatible with COVID-19 as per our school policy,” the release reads.
