VANCOUVER – Health officials in Kelowna say they’ve linked a cluster of COVID-19 infections to a local nightclub.

Interior Health issued a public display notice on Saturday warning patrons who visited Gotham nightclub on July 18 that they may have been exposed to the coronavirus.

Anyone who was at the site that night should monitor themselves for symptoms, seek tests and self-isolate if necessary, the health authority said in a press release.

“Public health contact tracing is ongoing and where contact information exists, (Interior Health) is directly contacting people who have been exposed,” the statement said.

Interior Health did not say how many cases were associated with the Gotham cluster.

British Columbia health authorities only issue public exposure warnings when there is a risk of COVID-19 transmission and authorities are unable to contact everyone who may have been exhibited.

Such notifications have become quite rare as the number of active infections in the province has declined.

Gotham is the second nightclub in British Columbia to be subject to a public display warning since the province authorized the reopening of these facilities with COVID-19 security plans in place on July 1.

Earlier this month, Vancouver Coastal Health issued a warning regarding Cabana Lounge in downtown Vancouver, urging people who visited the site in its first days of operation over the long holiday weekend. of Canada to monitor itself for symptoms.
