Fraser Health has declared a COVID-19 outbreak over at Burnaby Hospital.

“With the implementation of comprehensive strategies, there is no longer an outbreak at this site,” said a news release.

To enter an acute care facility, visitors must be fully vaccinated (seven days past their second dose of COVID-19) or considered excluded, as per the list below).

Visitors are required to be screened for signs and symptoms of illness, including COVID-19 symptoms, as well as show proof of full vaccination and identification prior to entry, including if only to pass through the facility to access an outdoor space. If you have any signs or symptoms of illness, or are in self-isolation or quarantine in accordance with public health directives, you will not be permitted to visit.

Fraser Health also declared a COVID-19 outbreak over at Cascade Gardens Seniors Community in Burnaby.

But Fraser Health is also warning of potential COVID-19 exposures at a Burnaby dance school as well as a child-care society. 

In separate notices dated for Nov. 19, 2021, the health authority says potential exposure could have occurred at the SFU Childcare Society on Nov. 15, 16 and 17 while exposure could have occurred on Nov. 9 and 10 at Dance Express Inc. 

The letters were shared by the anonymously run BC School COVID Tracker on Twitter as well as Facebook. 

Staff and parents who attended the SFU Childcare Society on the three dates listed and involved in the Morningside 3-5 program must closely monitor for the following COVID-19 symptoms until Dec.1, 2021 (14 days after the last exposure on Nov. 17).
