An elementary school in Hazelton is temporarily closed following a potential COVID-19 exposure.

According to a press release from School District 82, the Gitanmaax Band Council voted to close Majagaleehl Gali Aks Elementary School from March 1st to 7th in order to allow Northern Health to conduct "a fulsome contract-tracing process." The school will also be completely sanitized during this closure.

Northern Health's website says that the potential exposure happened between February 17th to 19th.

Parents and guardians will receive a call from school staff on Tuesday informing them of how online learning will work during this period. 

The school is projected to re-open on Monday, March 8th.
