Vancouver strip club reopening following COVID-19 outbreak

No COVID-19 increase for Vancouver Island over weekend, no deaths across B.C.

Health officials have reported no new cases of the coronavirus on Vancouver Island. "We have to remember when this virus is anywhere, the risk is everywhere".

Long-term care homes have been closed to non-essential visits since mid-March when an outbreak was declared at North Vancouver's Lynn Valley Care Centre, which became the centre of B.C.'s first major COVID-19 outbreak as 20 residents fatally contracted the virus.

There are now 153 active cases of COVID-19 in British Columbia.

Over the weekend, Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) officials said that they are notifying people who've recently visited Brandi's Exotic Show Lounge about the potential for exposure that took place between the hours of 9 pm and 3 am on the evenings of June 21st, 22nd, 23rd, and 24th (including midnight to 3 am on the 25th).

VCH asked people who were at the lounge between those dates and times to monitor themselves for 14 days.


Henry also said personal service providers, such as hair stylists and barbers, who have completed a safety plan will also be able to visit long-term care and assisted facilities. It's to try and ensure that we're not letting this virus get out of control and we've seen it happen ... in Washington state, Texas, California and Arizona. It says a number of people who tested positive for COVID-19 attended the lounge on those dates.

No new deaths were reported by the province.

Health Minister Adrian Dix said he wants to see the evidence that it's safe for the country's two largest airlines to drop their inflight distancing policies during the pandemic.

"Physical distancing saves lives", Dix said.

The airlines announced Friday that they would use health recommendations from the UN's aviation agency and the International Air Transport Association.
