Patrons who visited Vancouver’s Hotel Belmont bar and nightclub during the nights of Saturday, June 27, and Monday, June 29, are being warned of possible COVID-19 exposure.

In a notice, Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) stated individuals who tested positive for the virus attended the facility’s bar and nightclub on those two evenings.

“As a precaution, we are advising people who attended the bar and nightclub areas of the Hotel Belmont during the nights of Saturday, June 27 and Monday, June 29 to monitor themselves for 14 days,” said VCH.

“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.”

Those who don’t show symptoms do not need to get tested because it is “not accurate or useful,” stated VCH.

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

“If you develop any of these symptoms of COVID-19, please seek COVID-19 testing and immediately self-isolate. Please call ahead and wear a mask when seeking testing.”

Anyone with further questions is encouraged to contact public health at 604-675-3900.

VCH confirms there is no ongoing risk to the community.
