Following a case at Princess Margaret Secondary, there has been a COVID exposure at Penticton Secondary School.

Interior Health’s list of school exposures shows two dates for the exposure at Penticton Secondary School on Nov. 26 and 27.

Those are the same dates listed for the exposure at Princess Margaret Secondary School.

“A member of the Penticton Secondary school community has tested positive for COVID-19. They are self-isolating at home with support from local public health teams,” reads the letter sent to parents from the district on Thursday morning Dec. 3.

This is the third exposure in a week at a school in School District 67 and the second high school.

The first exposure in SD67 was reported at Giant’s Head Elementary School.

Interior Health is currently undertaking contact tracing to determine if anyone else in the school community will be required to self-isolate or be tested.

Students are still asked to continue to come to school while contact tracing is underway, and to maintain their daily health checks for any symptons.

This story is developing with more details to come.
