Staff and students at Magaret ‘Ma Murray’ Community School were also informed of a COVID-19 exposure from December 14th to 16th. This is the fifth exposure at Ma Murray.
Northern Health says every school in B.C. has a COVID-19 safety plan in place. In this case, the safety plan was followed, and because of this, the risk of additional cases is low.
