At least three other cases were reported at the school earlier in the month.

All those who tested positive are at home self isolating.

There is no mention in the various news releases of whether these are staff or students or how many people they may have been in contact with at the school have also been sent home to self-isolate.

The Interior Health school exposure web site said there were potential exposures in the school on Nov. 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10 and 12.
