SHA warns of possible COVID-19 exposure at Co-op Gas Bar in Saskatoon
SASKATOON -- The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) is reporting a possible COVID-19 exposure at the Co-op Gas Bar in Saskatoon's Blairmore neighbourhood.
In a release, the SHA said an individual who tested positive for the virus visited the gas bar on Molland Lane on Aug. 22 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:15 p.m. when likely infectious.
The SHA is advising anyone who was at that location during that date and time to immediately self-isolate if they have or had symptoms of COVID-19.
The health authority added that all other individuals who are not experiencing symptoms should self-monitor for 14 days and contact HealthLine 811 to arrange for testing.
In a statement posted to Facebook, Saskatoon Co-op said it can confirm that the individual who tested positive is not an employee, but does not have any further information.
The company said the health and safety of its staff and customers is a priority and that they have implemented diligent sanitation practices, physical barriers and physical distancing in all of their locations in response to the pandemic.
"We care greatly for the communities we work and live in and as a local, member-owned business, we take the responsibility to protect our communities seriously," the statement said.
