District sees sharp drop in COVID-19 exposures as we near end of school year

exposurenoticegraphs.pngThe number of cases of COVID-19 in the Surrey School District has decreased dramatically over the last month, thanks to high staff and community vaccination uptake and the continued vigilance of staff and students in following health and safety protocols.

COVID-19 cases continue to decline provincewide, with 74% of adults over 18 and 39% of youth aged 12 to 17 having received their first vaccine dose. District figures mirror the encouraging downward trend in the community.

Early notification, self-monitoring and student self-isolation letters are all on the decline in our district. Since peaking at 375 exposure notices issued throughout the month of April, the district has seen a steady decrease, dropping to 245 in May and just 19 in the first nine days of June.

Likewise, the number of self-monitoring letters dropped from 697 in April to 421 in May and 39 for the same period in June. Class isolation letters also slowed down from 67 in April to 37 in May and just two so far in June.

More than 90% of Surrey Schools staff have received their first dose of the vaccine, with second doses currently rolling out. More information about second doses is available on the B.C. government's Vaccination and Immunization website. Anyone who hasn't received their first dose or is awaiting their second, should ensure they are registered at getvaccinated.gov.bc.ca.

Fraser Health has also provided the following guides for registration and vaccination, with translations available in more than two dozen languages.
