Coronavirus exposure at Toronto restaurant possibly linked to Omicron variant – .


People who visited a downtown Toronto restaurant in late November are being warned of potential COVID-19 exposure linked to a suspected case of the Omicron variant.

Toronto Public Health (TPH) said an employee of Piccolo Caffe E Vino, located on John Street near Adelaide Street, who tested positive for COVID-19 was at the restaurant between 9 p.m. and 2 a.m. on the 26 and November 27.

Officials say the case is under investigation as a suspected variant of Omicron due to the individual’s recent trips to South Africa.

Public health officials are asking anyone who was at the restaurant during this time to get tested immediately for COVID-19 and to watch for symptoms for 10 days after their last visit.

“There is no risk to anyone attending the facility outside of these dates and times,” officials said in a press release on Friday.

“TPH followed all known close contacts and asked these people to self-isolate for 10 days and get tested. “

As of Friday, six cases of the new Omicron variant had been identified in Ontario, although the province’s chief medical officer of health said he would not be surprised to identify more.
