Public health contact tracing is underway, and where possible, IH is reaching out directly to individuals who have been exposed.

Anyone who participated in events in the Kelowna downtown and waterfront area between June 25 and July 6 should monitor closely for symptoms of COVID-19 and get tested if they develop symptoms.

Testing is recommended for anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, including:

    • Fever
    • Cough
    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    • Loss of sense of taste or smell
    • Other milder symptoms may include: runny nose, fatigue, body aches (muscles and joints aching), diarrhea, headache, sore throat, vomiting and red eyes.

IH reminds everyone of the importance of following COVID-19 precautions:

    • Stay home and avoid travel if you have symptoms, even mild ones.
    • Maintain physical distancing (two metres apart) and use masks when distancing is not possible.
    • Wash your hands regularly and do not touch your face.
