Two more Richmond schools have been flagged for possible COVID-19 exposures by Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH).

Maple Lane elementary and William Bridge elementary have both been listed on the health authority’s school exposure webpage.

There were possible exposures to the virus at Maple Lane on Nov. 20, Nov. 24 to 25 and Dec. 1.

Meanwhile, there was a possible exposure on Nov. 30 at William Bridge, according to VCH.

A school “exposure” is when someone with the virus was at the school during their infectious period, according to VCH’s website, which adds that “in the vast majority of cases, there is no transmission in the school setting.”

The health authority will post possible school exposures on its website when they feel that everyone who might have been exposed to the virus couldn’t be contacted directly.

There have also been exposures recently at Richmond Secondary (Nov. 24 to 27); Burnett secondary (Nov. 24 to 26); McNair secondary (Nov. 19 and Nov. 24 to 27); Hugh Boyd secondary (Nov. 25 to 26); Steveston-London (Nov. 24 to 26); Tait elementary (Nov. 18 to 19 and Nov. 23 to 24); Ferris (Nov. 20); and Palmer secondary (Nov. 17 to 18 and Nov. 20).
