Eight exposures to the Covid UK variant in 7 schools in Surrey and Delta:

SURREY (NEWS 1130) – There are worries about COVID-19 variants in schools south of the Fraser River with eight exposures now linked to the B.1.1.7 variant of the virus at seven schools in Surrey and Delta, as teachers push for districts to be given more power to deal with cases on a school-by-school basis.

“I’m feeling very concerned for my members and all the people working at the schools, along with the kids, for how they will go to school safely,” says Mat Westphal, president of the Surrey Teachers’ Association. “I wonder how many parents will feel safe sending their children to school.”

Westphal would like to see more decisive action from the province to allow stricter rules at a local level in classrooms.

According to the BC School COVID Tracker Facebook page, there are eight confirmed exposures to “variants of concern” as of Monday morning, all in the Fraser Health region.

In Surrey, there are two exposures listed at Tamanawis Secondary, and one each at Woodward Hill Elementary, Surrey Traditional Elementary, James Ardiel Elementary, AHP Matthew Elementary, and the independent Gobind Sarvar School.

In Delta, a variant has been confirmed in an exposure at Hellings Elementary.

COVID outbreak on 2 floors at VGH right now, outside of the actual COVID units.

I believe 2 nurses were infected, and 5 patients.

What's interesting here is that nurses are vaccinated, unless they skipped their vaccination. If they were in fact vaccinated, it'll be interesting to find out how they still ended up contracting COVID. Trying to get more details on that.

Not all nurses outside the units working directly with Covid patients are vaccinated even with the first dose yet.

-watching the Covid update on Global News Live video feed on Facebook.

Minister of Education is arguing that no changes in mask policy are needed in terms of giving each school district their own powers to determine policy.
Bad idea. She argues that rapid testing for teachers and staff at a Surrey School indicate no spread of variant.

All negative test results.

There, no change in mask policy for all school districts in BC.

Dr. Bonnie is giving her Covid case numbers update on Tuesday at 3pm.

For anyone on RS that is a parent with kids in school, what are your thoughts about this "One uniform policy for masks " for all school districts? Does this policy make sense in light of the Covid variant cases in Surrey and Delta schools?

I am hearing news stories that some teachers decided to open windows in their classrooms because of poor ventilation.
Then those windows at certain schools were nailed shut.

Probably because stuff like this, which I posted back on the 4th, still happens:

Her supervisor essentially bullied her into treating patients in a room where the conditions for transmission are high (I think she said it was hyper-oxygenated?). She asked for a protective suit beyond the N95 and was told they don't have any. Her supervisor lied and said the patients in the room had all tested negative. So she went in and did her job. After she had come out, the doctor on the floor told her that no, they had not tested negative, their results were still pending.

I haven't heard if those results came back negative, but I hope she stays safe. Maybe she and others should take this kind of treatment to their union rep or even the press.

That and the vaccine efficacy rate isn't 100%.

it takes about 2 weeks before you start feeling it after contracting covid getting sick with it

the vaccine takes about 12 days inside your body to get some of the blueprint what it needs to fight when infected.....

fully vaccinated you can still give anyone covid & there is no clue anything after this..

Yeah this would be a way different ballgame if you just got a shot and were guaranteed to just eradicate this. None of the vaccines are 100%, so it should come as no surprise that transmission is still possible.

takes deep breathes and then screams i can't breath several times...

the response was correct "no one is choking you", that was not an applied rear naked choke, he was just being held imo
