Another Vancouver strip club reports possible coronavirus exposure

Jul 8 2020, 12:33 am

After recently notifying the public about potential coronavirus exposure at Brandi’s Show Lounge, Vancouver Coastal Health issued a COVID-19 exposure to recent patrons of another Vancouver strip club – this time the No.5 Orange.

In a statement on Tuesday afternoon, health officials said they are 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.”

They note, however, that “there is no known risk to anyone who attended the No.5 Orange outside that date [and] there is no ongoing risk to the community.”

There is also “no evidence” that this exposure is linked to recent ones at Brandi’s Exotic Show Lounge or the Hotel Belmont.

Still, as a precaution, health officials are advising people who attended the No. 5 Orange on July 1 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,” officials said.

For those with no symptoms, “testing is not recommended because it is not accurate or useful.” However, anyone who does develop symptoms should “seek testing and immediately self-isolate.”
