Toronto's REBEL Nightclub Linked to Coronavirus Outbreak
Four people have tested positive for the virus after attending the venue earlier this month
Published Sep 22, 2020While Toronto's large-scale entertainment complex REBEL may have led the way with drive-in concerts for safe, physically distanced events, the venue has now been connected to a coronavirus outbreak.
As BlogTO reports, Toronto Public Health officials have confirmed four cases of COVID-19 in individuals who attended the waterfront venue's second-floor NOIR nightclub on September 11.
Officials are asking anyone who was at the venue that day between the hours of 10:30 p.m. and 2 a.m. to be strict with physical distancing measures and monitor themselves until Friday (September 25) for a new or worsening cough, shortness of breath, high temperature, fever, chills and other various symptoms.
"These individuals should make a particular effort to keep a six-foot distance from other people, wear a mask in public spaces, and wash their hands frequently," officials wrote in a statement. "They should also limit contact with others, especially those in health care settings, seniors, and/or other vulnerable populations."
As of September 18, Toronto Public Health investigators found the venue to be in compliance with COVID-19 regulations. Officials are currently following up with potentially exposed individuals using contact tracing procedures.
