Interior Health identified an additional location in Kelowna where people may have been exposed to COVID-19.

Anyone who visited Liquid Zoo, 74 Lawrence Ave, in Kelowna, from July 15 to 18 are asked to self-monitor closely for symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days and to get tested if they begin to exhibit symptoms, the health authority said in a press release.

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

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.

Testing is recommended for anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, including fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing and 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.
