COVID-19 exposure possible at Kelowna's Cactus Club and Pace Spin Studio

July 12, 2020 - 7:39 PM

Interior Health has now identified additional locations in Kelowna where exposure to COVID-19 was possible.

If you visited Kelowna's Cactus Club, on Water Street, from July 3 to 6, or Pace Spin Studio, on Harvey Ave, from July 2, 4, 5, 7, 8 and 9 you are asked to self-monitor yourself closely for symptoms of COVID-19 and get tested if they have symptoms associated with the disease.

Yesterday, on July 11, Interior Health directed individuals who attended gatherings at Discovery Bay Resort (1088 Sunset Dr., Kelowna) from July 1 to 5 and Boyce Gyro Beach Lodge (3519 Lakeshore Rd., Kelowna) on July 1 to also monitor themselves for symptoms.

Public health contact tracing is underway, and where possible, IH is reaching out directly to individuals who have been exposed.

Anyone who participated in events in the Kelowna downtown and waterfront area between June 25 and July 6 should monitor closely for symptoms of COVID-19 and get tested if they develop symptoms.

Individuals seeking a test should call their primary care provider (family physician or nurse practitioner) or the closest Interior Health community testing and assessment centre.

COVID-19 testing

  • Testing is recommended for anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, including:
  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Loss of sense of taste or smell
  • Other milder symptoms may include: runny nose, fatigue, body aches (muscles and joints aching), diarrhea, headache, sore throat, vomiting and red eyes.

IH reminds everyone of the importance of  staying home and avoiding travel if you have symptoms, even mild ones. Maintain physical distancing (two metres apart) and use masks when distancing is not possible. Wash your hands regularly and do not touch your face. Do not plan or attend gatherings of more than 50 people. Limit gatherings to out of doors whenever possible.
