SURREY, B.C. -- Parents at five schools in Surrey, B.C., were sent email notifications over the weekend warning them of possible COVID-19 exposures at their children's schools.
The schools announced Saturday and Sunday are Tamanawis Secondary, Ecole Panorama Ridge, L.A. Matheson, Queen Elizabeth Secondary and Boundary Park Elementary.
At Tamanawis Secondary the dates of possible exposure were Sept. 14, 15, 16 and 17.

Surrey is the largest district in the province.
So far there has been no known transmission in any B.C. schools.
