Four more schools in Richmond – Hugh Boyd secondary, Steveston-London secondary and R.J. Tait elementary and private school Az-Zahraa Islamic Academy – have been added to Vancouver Coastal Health’s list of possible exposures.

VCH posted that the possible exposure took place at Hugh Boyd on Nov. 25 to 26.

There were also possible exposures at Steveston-London on Nov. 24 to 26, and an exposure could have occurred at Tait on Nov. 18 to 19 and Nov. 23 to 24.

Meanwhile, VCH says there was also a possible exposure at Az-Zahraa Islamic Academy, a private school on the Highway to Heaven, on Nov. 25 to 26.

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 McMath secondary (Nov. 12 to 13 and Nov. 16 to 18); DeBeck elementary (Nov. 17 to 19); Palmer secondary (Nov. 17 to 18 and Nov. 20); Ferris elementary (Nov. 20); and Richmond Secondary (Nov. 24 to Nov. 25).
