COVID-19 – Case identified in someone who visited ANAVets March 13 to 17

Interior Health says it has identified a case of COVID-19 in someone who visited the ANAVets 290 Army & Navy Club at 9-177 Tranquille Rd. in Kamloops between March 13 and 17.

Anyone who visited ANAVets 290 on these dates and who has developed respiratory symptoms within 14 days of their visit needs to self-isolate at home for a minimum of 10 days from the time their symptoms develop and until symptoms resolve, said a news release from IH.

ANAVets 290 closed its doors to the public on March 18 after the provincial government ordered all clubs and bars to close. The club is aware of the potential exposure to visitors and club members and is taking measures to share information with them directly.

Symptoms of COVID-19 include the following:

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

People who develop symptoms, particularly those who are older or have underlying health conditions, should call 811 or their health-care provider if they have concerns or questions about their health.Testing is not required for those who have mild respiratory symptoms. If respiratory symptoms worsen, call 811 or your health-care provider. For further guidance, use the BC COVID-19 Symptom Self-Assessment Tool.

People who have respiratory symptoms that can be managed at home should self-isolate at home for at least 10 days after onset of symptoms. If, after 10 days, you feel better, your symptoms have improved and you have had no fever for 72 hours, whichever is later, you may return to regular activities. Coughing may persist for several weeks, so a cough alone does not mean you need to continue to self-isolate for more than 10 days.
