A gas bar in Saskatoon’s Blairmore neighbourhood has been flagged by the SHA as the site of a possible COVID-19 exposure.
In a press release issued Friday evening, the SHA noted that an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19 had visited the Co-op Gas Bar on Molland Lane on Aug. 22 between 5:30 and 6:15 p.m. when likely infectious.
The SHA is asking that anyone who may have visited the business around this time, and are experiencing symptoms of the virus, to immediately self-isolate and call HealthLine 811 to book a COVID-19 test.
Those who are not experiencing symptoms are asked to self-monitor for at least two weeks as individuals may develop symptoms from two to 14 days following exposure.
