The venue, called Royals Jerk Spot, is a pop-up style gathering that is known for offering Jamaican jerk BBQ and live DJs. The event is hosted by and at Royals Beauty Supply at 13553 105a Ave. in Surrey.

Anyone who may have been at this venue at those times is asked to self-isolate and monitor for symptoms, and to obtain COVID-19 testing if needed.
