Officials with Interior Health are advising several individuals who attended a private party at Kelowna’s Hotel Zed in the early hours of September 7 that they may have been exposed to COVID-19.
According to the health authority, “a number of people gathered in a common area and/or balcony of the hotel at 1627 Abbott St., Kelowna, and may have been exposed to COVID-19.”
The party is reported to have taken place between midnight and 3:30 am.
And while Interior Health said it is working closely with Hotel Zed, it noted that “individuals who attended this party may not have been registered guests.”
As a result, health officials are asking people who attended this party to self-monitor closely for symptoms of COVID-19 and to get tested if they begin to exhibit symptoms.

Interior Health said contact tracing is underway and, where possible, officials are “reaching out directly to individuals who have been exposed.”
This potential exposure “is a reminder of how important it is to keep gatherings small and to people you know as we head into the fall,” officials said.
Individuals seeking a test should call their primary care provider (family physician or nurse practitioner) or the closest Interior Health community testing and assessment centre.
