The Kingston-area health unit is warning of COVID-19 exposure at two more local restaurants.

Dr. Kieran Moore, medical officer of health for KFL&A Public Health, announced Wednesday that a person who tested positive for COVID-19 attended Tango Nuevo restaurant last week.

The health unit says anyone who attended the restaurant on April 2 between 11:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. should self-isolate regardless of symptoms. Health officials will reach out to affected individuals by phone over the next few days. They also ask that anyone with risk of exposure be tested on or after April 9.

Also on Tuesday, the health unit said several patrons who were COVID-19 positive attended The Brass Pub on Princess Street last week.

The health unit is recommending that individuals who attended the restaurant on April 2, between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m., self-monitor for symptoms while they wait to be tested. But, if you develop symptoms, the health unit says you should isolate immediately and get tested.

Otherwise, health officials ask that all those affected by the exposure be tested on or after seven days from the exposure date, therefore on or after April 9.

There are now three exposure risks at local restaurants announced by the health unit over the last week.

KFL&A Public Health previously asked those who attended the Mansion restaurant on two separate occasions to be tested after COVID-19 positive patients dined at the establishment.

The health unit says it releases exposure risks if it does not feel confident it can reach all close contacts of people who have tested positive for COVID-19.
