The number of active COVID cases is rising in North Vancouver Island and two Campbell River schools are now listed on Island Health exposure list.
Update for our area
While it is not yet known where these cases are, the only North Vancouver Island schools on Island Health’s school exposure page are in Campbell River
A member of Ecole Middle School tested positive and on April 13th the school sent out a potential exposure notice.
A member of the Willow Point elementary community also tested positive and a potential exposure notice was posted for April 7,8,9, 12 and 13.
However the numbers for Southern and Central Vancouver Island have declined, so that while there were 504 active COVID 19 cases throughout Island Health a week ago, there are now 446.
To put this in context, a recent estimate states there are more than 870,000 people living on Vancouver Island and almost half of them are in Victoria. There are only 44,000 people throughout the entire Strathcona Regional District.
