A handful of popular destinations in the City of Toronto are on a new COVID-19 exposure list shared with the public on Saturday, December 11.

The COVID-19 exposure notification system reported three locations of possible exposures at Hotel X Toronto, CLIO Restaurant, and Scotiabank Arena. These settings are linked to 19 confirmed cases of COVID-19.

Toronto Public Health hopes to notify people at the following locations at the listed dates and times:

TPH has already followed up with all known close contacts, asking them get tested and self-isolate for 10 days.

As of 3 pm on Saturday, December 11, TPH said that there are a total of 19 cases associated with these settings. Now, the cases are “undergoing whole genome sequencing to determine if they are the Omicron variant of concern,” said TPH.
