September 14, 2020: Surrey Schools Weekly Update from Surrey Schools on Vimeo.
In his latest recent video update, Surrey Schools Superintendent Jordan Tinney explains what happens when a confirmed case of COVID-19 is linked to a school or district site.
"I've had lots of questions about this and I want to provide some quick, easy answers for you around what that looks like," Tinney says.
"A confirmed case is actually interviewed by public health to determine when they were infected, how they were infected and most importantly, who is a close contact. If the case was infectious while they were in school, or if they became infected while at school, then public health will work with us and we will begin our communications plans and talking to our employees or our students.
The bottom line, says Tinney, is that "we will let you know if there is a confirmed case at school, and if it impacts you at all."
