A cluster of COVID-19 cases has been linked to the Gotham nightclub in Kelowna, Interior Health announced today.

People who attended the nightclub on July 18 are asked to self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 and to get tested if they begin to exhibit symptoms.

Public health contact tracing is underway and where contact information exists, the health authority said it 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.

Everyone is encouraged to get their first or second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine by dropping into an immunization clinic or making an appointment.

To make an appointment, register online by visiting the provincial website at www.getvaccinated.gov.bc.ca/, call 1-833-838-2323, or visit a Service BC office listed here, and then book an appointment.
