Today, Dr. Kieran Moore, Medical Officer of Health at KFL&A Public Health confirmed that several patrons who were COVID-19 positive attended The Brass Pub, at 403 Princess St., in downtown Kingston. It is the second such disclosure by KFL&A Public Health today, following a confirmation of several positive COVID-19 cases at The Mansion.
KFL&A Public Health says that, as part of the COVID-19 case management and contact tracing process, it follows up with close contacts of individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19. In the event that the contact tracing team is unable to identify close contacts of an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19, such as in this case, a public release is then issued in an attempt to reach those contacts.
KFL&A Public Health recommends that individuals who attended The Brass Pub on Friday, April 2, between 4 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19.
Individuals who develop symptoms should isolate immediately and get tested at one of our local assessment centres, said the health unit.
KFL&A Public Health also recommends that individuals affected by this exposure get tested on or after seven days from the exposure date. If you attended the pub on April 2, 2021 please go for testing on or after April 9, 2021.
