Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) has added Whistler's Buffalo Bill's Bar & Grill to its public exposure list for COVID-19. The restaurant and bar is located at 4122 Village Green. 

Anyone who was at the venue on Oct. 31 is asked to self-monitor for symptoms. 

"The possible exposure is believed to be low risk," a VCH Facebook post said. 

As Pique reported yesterday, Earl's Kitchen + Bar, at 4295 Blackcomb Way in Whistler Village, temporarily closed last week. A sign on the door said it was "out of an abundance of caution for our guests and employees."

On Tuesday, VCH added the restaurant to its exposure list as well. 

Potential exposure dates are from Oct. 31 to Nov. 6 during operating hours, VCH said. 

It also said the exposure potential is low, but anyone who was there during those dates should self-monitor for symptoms. 

If you visited either of the indicated locations during the times of possible exposure, it does not mean you will develop COVID-19.

If you have been identified as the close contact of someone infected with COVID-19, VCH Public Health will contact you directly and provide further instruction.

Exposure notices are active on the VCH site for a month and then archived.
