Possible COVID-19 exposure at Kelowna clothing store

July 24, 2020 - 1:15 PM

Interior Health says people may have been exposed to COVID-19 at a downtown Kelowna clothing store.

"Individuals who visited Fossello’s clothing store, 565 Bernard Avenue, on July 18, or on the morning of July 20 between 10 a.m.to 12 p.m., are asked to self-monitor closely for symptoms of COVID-19 and to get tested if they begin to exhibit symptoms," reads an Interior Health news release.

Public health contact tracing is under way and Interior Health will reach out directly to those who have been exposed, if possible.

Individuals who wish to be tested should first contact their primary care provider or the closest Interior Health community testing and assessment centre.

Turtle Bay Pub in Lake Country said yesterday, July 23, it would temporarily close as a staff member was getting tested for the virus after an exposure.

World Gym chose to close down after receiving an alert from Interior Health that a "potentially infectious" person visited the facility on July 9 and 10. Businesses that have either put out notices or closed include Poplar Grove Winery, Quail’s Gate Estate Winery, Rustic Reel Brewing Company and Train Station Pub. JoieFarm Winery in Oliver has closed its tasting room even though no customers or staff are suspected of being infected.

Browns Socialhouse in Kelowna, at 100-1544 Harvey Ave,, has also been identified as a place where people may gave been exposed to the virus following a series of private parties and gatherings in the city around Canada Day. Cactus Club, Pace Spin Studio, Discovery Bay Resort and Boyce Gyro Beach Lodge were identified earlier this month.

The Krazy Cherry Fruit Company outbreak in Oliver is also linked to the Kelowna events.
