COVID-19 exposures flagged at Burnaby nail salon and spa

Fraser Health has issued a warning about COVID-19 exposures over a four-day period at a Burnaby business.

The health authority’s exposure website has posted about Haven Nails and Spa, which is located at 6544 Hastings St. in the Kensington shopping centre.

The exposure days run from Nov. 14 to 17.

“Anyone who was on-site during this time must self-isolate for 14 days after last time at the site,” reads the posting.

“If you have been in one of these locations at the times of possible exposure, it does not mean you will develop COVID-19. The possible exposures listed on this site are believed to be low risk but, out of an abundance of caution, Public Health asks anyone who may have visited any of the locations listed on the specified dates and times to monitor themselves for symptoms. There is no known risk to anyone who attended any listed locations outside of the specified dates and times.”

Fraser Health has also posted a COVID-19 exposure notice for Burnaby’s Maywood Community School. The date of the exposure is listed as Nov. 10.

On Monday, provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry is expected to release the COVID-19 case numbers that have been registered from the previous three-day period.

British Columbia’s top doctor recently asked office-based workplaces and companies to keep employees working from home, until next year.

Henry informed the public of the provincial health decision in Thursday’s COVID-19 press briefing.

“Right now, we are asking all office-based employers to temporarily suspend their efforts to get workers safely back into their workplaces, and to support working from home, where possible, until at least the New Year,” said Henry. “For anyone going to work, it is important that we minimize all of those social interactions with our colleagues before, during, and after work.”
