COVID-19 – Virus found at Subway restaurant in Cache Creek, says IH


A case of COVID-19 has been discovered at the Subway restaurant in Cache Creek, Interior Health said today (March 31, 2020).

In addition to the regular protocol of following up with close contacts of the affected person, Interior Health said it is asking people who visited the restaurant on March 25, 26, and 27 to self-isolate and monitor for symptoms until April 10 or 14 days from the time of their visit.

For information on self-isolation, see the B.C. Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) guide to self-isolation if you do not have COVID-19 or respiratory symptoms.

As long as customers remain healthy and do not develop symptoms, they can return to their routine activities 14 days after the date of their visit, the health authority said.

If customers develop respiratory symptoms, they need to self-isolate at home for a minimum of 10 days from the time their symptoms develop and until symptoms resolve. See the BCCDC guide to self-isolation if you have respiratory symptoms.

Testing is not required for those who have mild respiratory symptoms. If respiratory symptoms worsen, particularly those who are older or have underlying health conditions, call 811 or your health-care provider. For further guidance, use the B.C. COVID-19 Symptom Self-Assessment Tool.

Interior Health also announced it is investigating a COVID-19 outbreak involving a group of temporary foreign workers in housing at a West Kelowna agricultural business. The workers have been placed in quarantine in housing at Bylands Nurseries Ltd.

Monday, the health authority temporarily suspended pay parking at its sites effective Wednesday.
