KELOWNA (NEWS 1130) — Kelowna’s École de l’Anse-au-sable — B.C.’s first school with a confirmed COVID-19 outbreak — is being shut down for two weeks, according to local media outlet Castanet.
In a letter sent out to parents Sunday, administrators at the school say they’ve analyzed the situation, and say they have little choice but to close the doors until Nov. 4.
The closure was not ordered by Interior Health, which lists potential exposure dates as Oct. 13, 14, 15, 16, 19 and 20.
