VCH expands coronavirus warning at Yaletown restaurant and lounge

Aug 10 2020, 4:20 pm

Vancouver Coastal Health has expanded its warning about potential coronavirus exposure at a Yaletown restaurant and its upstairs lounge last week.

West Oak Restaurant, located at 1035 Mainland Street, was the first location named, and the health authority says people who visited between July 31 to August 5 or on August 7 should monitor themselves for symptoms.

VCH also identified Pierre’s Champagne Lounge, at 1028 Hamilton Street as another site where the coronavirus could have been transmitted. Again, the risk of exposure was during the evening and late-night hours from July 31 to August 7, excluding August 6.

The health authority reminded people who attended the lounge and restaurant on those dates to self-isolate and seek testing if they develop coronavirus symptoms.

Vancouver Mayor Kennedy Stewart visited West Oak when it first reopened back in early May in a bid to encourage Vancouverites to venture out cautiously and support local businesses.
