(Irish Times Pub)

Patrons at Victoria’s Irish Times Pub should check if they visited on one particular date last week.

Island Health has issued a possible COVID-19 exposure alert for the pub on November 13, and anyone who attended the business between 5 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. should monitor themselves for symptoms of COVID-19.

The health authority deems this exposure ‘low risk’ but have issued a warning out of an abundance of caution.

“Contact tracing has been completed, and anyone identified as a close contact has been instructed to self-isolate,” reads the statement from Island Health.

If you have not been contacted by public health, then please be assured you did not have a high-risk exposure related to this case. No ongoing COVID-19 risk from this exposure has been identified.”

There are now seven schools, two long term care facilities, one hospital, and two businesses with active exposures or outbreaks on Vancouver Island.
