Fraser Health declares COVID-19 outbreak at Cindrich Elementary School in Surrey

  • Fraser Health declares COVID-19 outbreak at Cindrich Elementary School in Surrey

Fraser Health is working closely with the Surrey School District to manage a COVID-19 exposure at Cindrich Elementary School.

An individual at the school tested positive for a COVID-19 variant of concern. Only those staff and students who have been identified as close contacts need to be tested and have been contacted.

The school will remain open. As these are variants that are new to our communities and more easily transmissible, Fraser Health is working to identify any further connected variant cases to ensure immediate isolation and case management to prevent further transmission.

The variant strain can transmit more quickly and easily but does not interfere with the effectiveness of vaccines, nor affect our ability to test for the virus.
