Health Authority expands coronavirus exposure warning for Vancouver strip club

Jul 9 2020, 1:22 am

Vancouver Coastal Health has expanded the COVID-19 exposure warning for the No.5 Orange strip club. 

This comes after an initial announcement on Tuesday, where the health authority announced they were notifying patrons who visited the venue at 205 Main Street in the “evening hours” on Canada Day, that “an individual who tested positive for COVID-19 attended No5 Orange on that date.”

Now VCH has extended the warning to include July 3, 4, or 7 after another individual has tested positive for the virus.

“VCH initially notified the public about a potential exposure that occurred July 1 but learned of an additional person who tested positive for COVID-19 and attended No5 Orange on those dates. VCH has closed the establishment to review its safety plan and ensure there is no further risk to the public,” stated the health authority.

As a precaution, health officials are advising people who attended the No. 5 Orange on July 1, 3, 4, or 7 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,” stated VCH.

“If you have no symptoms, testing is not recommended because it is not accurate or useful. If you develop any symptoms of COVID-19, please seek testing and immediately self-isolate. Please call ahead and wear a mask when seeking testing.”

If you are concerned you may have been exposed and have questions, you can speak to Public Health staff at 604-675-3900.
