COVID-19 Update on SCP March 19

According to Island Health people who attended the swimming pool at Commonwealth Place on March 12, between 5 and 7 p.m. (as well as certain classes at UVic on Mar 15th may have been exposed to COVID-19.  


Island Health says the people who attended these locations are at a low risk. Any possible exposures are restricted to the March 12 and March 15 incidents. We do know that the incident case was a Synchro coach and so the risk on the comp pool side would be likely even lower, but people who were at SCP are being asked by Island Health to monitor themselves closely for symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, fever, sore throat and difficulty breathing. 


Anyone experiencing these symptoms is asked to self-isolate for 14 days following the onset.  The BC COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool will also help determine if you need further assessment or testing for the virus.  If after using the self-assessment tool, if you still have questions, contact your healthcare provider or call 8-1-1 for guidance.
