“Exposure alerts like these are believed to be low risk, but they should be taken seriously,” the health authority said on Instagram. “Out of an abundance of caution, monitor yourself for symptoms if you visited during the above time.⁠”

Anyone who visited during these times is asked to self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days.

If you do develop symptoms, call your family doctor or 811, seek testing, and self-isolate.
