Health authorities have identified a possible COVID-19 exposure at a Dick’s Lumber supply store in Metro Vancouver.

According to Fraser Health, someone with coronavirus was at the hardware supply store in Surrey over a number of days in September and October.

The lumber and building supply store is located at 12433 80 Avenue. Reported exposures occurred on September 30, October 1, 5, 7, 8, and 9 between 8:30 am and 5 pm each day.

Fraser Health says that public exposures are announced when they’re “unable to reach or identify all individuals potentially exposed via contact tracing.”

While possible public exposures are “believed to be low risk,” health authorities ask anyone who may have visited the location over the specified dates and times to self-monitor for symptoms.

“There is no known risk to anyone who attended any listed locations outside of the specified dates and times,” reads the Fraser Health website. “If people remain healthy and do not develop symptoms, there is no need to self-isolate and people can continue with their usual daily activities.”

Earlier this week, the BC government announced that it had formally extended its provincial state of emergency which has been in effect since March.
