According to Public Health, individuals who attended The Mansion — located at 506 Princess Street in downtown Kingston — on Monday, Mar. 29, 2021 between 6:30 and 10:15 p.m. or Friday, Apr.2, 2021 between 5 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. should self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19. Individuals who develop symptoms should isolate immediately and get tested at one of the local COVID-19 assessment centres.
The Mansion released a statement on their Facebook page: “In coordination with KFLA public health, a media release was sent out today regarding individuals who happened to attend the Mansion last week and have since tested positive for Covid-19. We encourage everyone to read the Kingstonist article or those of other media outlets, especially if you attended the mansion on the nights of March 29, or April 2. All of our staff who were at risk from working on Monday March 29 have been tested and their results have all come back negative. We are awaiting results from our staff who worked Friday April 2 and will update you as they come in. So far, 3 of our April 2 staff have received their results and all 3 tested negative. Out of an abundance of caution, all of our staff have been asked to get tested even if they didn’t work those particular days. We would like to thank KFLA public health for their diligence in this process and we hope everyone remains safe. Thank you to everyone who has reached out with support.”
