Officials with Interior Health are warning those who attended a large camping event in the BC Interior this past weekend that they may have been exposed to coronavirus.
In a statement, the health authority said it was “alerted to a group of approximately 150 participants” who attended the event from September 12 to 13 at the Bombi Summit (between Castlegar and Salmo) and is now urging attendees to self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms.

And while they note that at this point “there was no confirmed case” known to be in attendance, “the possibility of COVID-19 exposure is increased significantly when large groups gather.”
As such, Interior Health is once again urging everyone “to keep their bubbles small and reduce their number of close contacts.”
