FRASER Health has announced a COVID-19 public exposure at Abbotsford’s Gurdwara Baba Banda Singh Bahadar Sikh Society (see above).

If you were in attendance at any of this location during the times mentioned above, public health recommends you self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19.
Common symptoms of COVID-19 may include fever, chills, cough or worsening of chronic cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny nose, loss of sense of smell or taste, headache, fatigue, diarrhea, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting and/or muscle aches.

If you have symptoms related to COVID-19, however mild, use the B.C. COVID-19 Self Assessment Tool, call 8-1-1, seek testing and then self-isolate.

COVID-19 is spread by respiratory droplets when a person who is sick coughs or sneezes. It can also be spread when a healthy person touches an object or surface (e.g., a doorknob or a table) with the virus on it, and then touches their mouth, nose or eyes before washing their hands.

Most people who get COVID-19 have only mild disease, but a few people can get very sick and may need to go to hospital.

There is no known risk to anyone who attended the location outside of the specified dates and times. If people remain healthy and do not develop symptoms, there is no need to self-isolate and people can continue with their usual daily activities.

If you develop any symptoms of COVID-19, seek testing and then self-isolate. Call ahead and wear a mask when seeking testing.

If you have been identified as a COVID-19 case or close contact, be assured that Fraser Health’s public health team will contact you directly and provide further instruction.
