“We follow the direction of Island Health,” said district spokesman Mike Russell.

Chemainus Secondary School, Cowichan Secondary School and Quamichan School have also had COVID-19 exposures this month. An exposure is when a single person with a confirmed case of COVID-19 attends a school during their infectious period.

Duncan Christian School, a private school that is not part of the district, will be closed until Feb. 1 after several people in the school community tested positive for COVID-19.

A notice was issued Monday by the Sooke School District saying there had been a COVID-19 exposure at Royal Bay Secondary School.
