Interior Health has announced that a person with COVID-19 recently visited the Anavets 290 Army & Navy Club between March 13 and 17.

"Anyone who visited Anavets 290 on these dates and who has developed respiratory symptoms within 14 days of their visit needs to self-isolate at home for a minimum of 10 days from the time their symptoms develop and until symptoms resolve," according to IH in a media release.

Symptoms of COVID-19 include:

• Fever
• Cough
• Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
• Other milder symptoms may include: runny nose, fatigue, body aches (muscles and joints aching), diarrhea, headache, sore throat, vomiting and red eyes.

Individuals who develop symptoms, particularly those who are older or have underlying health conditions, should call 8-1-1 or their health-care provider if they have concerns or questions about their health.

Testing is not required for those who have mild respiratory symptoms. If respiratory symptoms worsen, call 8-1-1 or your health-care provider. For further guidance, use the BC COVID-19 Symptom Self-Assessment Tool.

Individuals who have respiratory symptoms that can be managed at home, should self-isolate at home for at least 10 days after onset of symptoms. If after 10 days you feel better, your symptoms have improved and you have had no fever for 72 hours, whichever is later, you may return to regular activities. Coughing may persist for several weeks, so a cough alone does not mean you need to continue to self-isolate for more than 10 days, according to IH.

"It is important to note that Anavets 290 closed its doors to the public on March 18 after the BC Provincial Government ordered all clubs and bars to close in order to deal effectively with the COVID-19 pandemic," according to IH.

The club is aware of this potential exposure to visitors and club members and is taking measures to share this information with them directly, according to the release.

"Community transmission of COVID-19 has been detected in communities across the Interior Health region. All communities should assume COVID-19 cases are present and take appropriate precautions," according to IH.
