Northern Health also reminds parents and guardians of the Public Exposures and Outbreaks listings, which track any declared situations that may be found in the School Districts across the Northern Health Region.
To date only two School Districts have recorded exposure events, one in Quesnel and the other in the Peace River area.
You can access those listings here.
