COVID-19 public exposures

COVID-19 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 (e.g. a doorknob or a table) with the virus on it, and then touches their mouth, nose or eyes before washing their hands. 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.

As a precaution, Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) updates this list with the locations and times of known possible exposures to COVID-19 to the public in our region. The possible exposures listed on this site are believed to be low risk but, out of an abundance of caution, Public Health asks anyone who may have visited any of the locations listed on the specified dates and times to monitor themselves for symptoms. There is no known risk to anyone who attended any listed locations outside of the specified dates and times. 

  • If you remain healthy and do not develop symptoms, there is no need to self-isolate and you can continue with your usual daily activities. 

  • If you have symptoms related to COVID-19,  however mild, please call your family doctor or 8-1-1, seek testing and then self-isolate. Please call ahead and wear a mask when seeking testing.

During contact tracing, our Public Health team does a thorough assessment of where the person has been during their infections period and if there was any risk of public exposure. Depending on the type of interactions a case has had and the measures and safety plans in place at the time, we are often able to identify and notify all close contacts directly and determine there is no further risk. Public health only issues public exposure alerts if:

  1. They've determined there was a risk of public exposure and

  2. They're not able to contact everyone who may have been exposed

If you have been identified as a COVID-19 case or close contact, please know that VCH Public Health will contact you directly and provide further instructions.
