VCH warns of COVID-19 exposure at Downtown Vancouver club

COVID alert at nightclub

Health authorities are notifying people who visited the bar and nightclub areas of Vancouver's Hotel Belmont about a possible exposure to COVID-19 during the nights of Monday, June 27 and Wednesday, June 29.

In a release, Vancouver Coastal Health states that individuals who tested positive for COVID-19 attended these areas of the Hotel Belmont (654 Nelson St.) on those dates.

However, the health authority adds that there is no known risk to anyone who attended the Hotel Belmont outside these two dates. In addition, there is no ongoing risk to the community.

As a precaution, VCH advises people who attended the bar and nightclub areas of the Hotel Belmont during the nights of Monday, June 27 and Wednesday, June 29 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.

If you have no symptoms, testing is not recommended because it is not accurate or useful. 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. 

In June, VCH warned of a possible exposure to COVID-19 to people who were at Brandi's Exotic Show Lounge between 9 p.m. and 3 a.m. from June 21 to 24. It says a number of people who tested positive for COVID-19 attended the lounge on those dates. However, the club has since passed a health inspection and reopened.
