Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH)  officials said on Saturday that they are notifying people who’ve recently visited Brandi’s Exotic Show Lounge in Vancouver about possible exposure to coronavirus.

In a statement, VCH said the potential for exposure took place between the hours of 9 pm and 3 am on the evenings of June 21st, 22nd, 23rd, and 24th (including midnight to 3 am on the 25th).

“Multiple individuals who tested positive for COVID-19 attended Brandi’s Exotic Show Lounge on those dates,” said VCH. “There was no risk to anyone attending Brandi’s Exotic Show Lounge outside of these dates and times.”

They also noted “there is no ongoing risk to the community.”

Still VCH said that as a precaution, they are advising people who attended Brandi’s Exotic Show Lounge during those hours to monitor themselves for 14 days.

“As long as they remain healthy and do not develop symptoms, there is no need to self-isolate and they should continue with their usual daily activities,” VCH said. For those with no symptoms, “testing is not recommended because it is not accurate or useful.”

Symptoms of COVID-19 may include loss of smell, fatigue, loss of appetite, fever, cough, malaise, runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea.
