The City of Kamloops is warning residents of a potential COVID-19 exposure at the Tournament Capital Centre after two swimmers tested positive for the disease.

The two individuals attended the Canada Games Aquatic Centre at the Tournament Capital Centre, July 30,  in the afternoon, according to the city's press release.

"Interior Health is contacting all people who attended the public swim on July 30, 2021, from 1:45 to 2:45 p.m. and instructing them to isolate for 14 days from that date.

"TCC staff are not required to isolate as the nature of their work keeps them physically distanced from guests of the facility. Everyone, including TCC staff, is required to monitor symptoms," according to the release.

The city is no longer required to have people register for contract tracing purposes but a list of everyone at the pool during this time period has been given Interior Health as the city is still requiring registration for visits to the aquatics centre.
