Health officials are warning about potential exposure to the COVID-19 virus at three restaurants in Whistler.
Vancouver Coastal Health says anyone who visited Earls Kitchen + Bar on Blackcomb Way from Oct. 31 to Nov. 6 should self monitor for symptoms.
The health authority is also warning about potential exposure on Oct. 31 at Buffalo Bill’s Bar & Grill on Village Green in Whistler.
A third potential exposure, at the The Longhorn Saloon, occurred on Oct. 31 during the evening hours.
It’s believed those who visited these restaurants are at a low risk of catching the virus, but they are asked to monitor for symptoms.
The COVID-19 virus is spread by respiratory droplets when a person who is sick coughs or sneezes. It can also be spread when a healthy person touches an object or surface such as a doorknob or a table.
Most people who get COVID-19 have only mild disease, but a few people can get very sick and may need to go to hospital.
The symptoms of COVID-19 may include fatigue, loss of appetite, fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, loss of smell and/or diarrhea.
