Fraser Health is warning the public of several recent coronavirus (COVID-19) exposures at a barbershop in Surrey.
The exposures took place at the Hyde Barber Lounge located at 102 – 15335 56th Ave last week on April 8 and 9 between 8:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. Exposures were also reported on April 14 between 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. and on April 15 and 16 between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m.
Three days ago the barbershop posted to social media announcing the shop will be closed until April 27.
“We will be launching a new booking system and some other new exciting stuff. Sorry for any inconvenience we will see you again very soon,” Hyde management wrote on the shop’s Instagram page.
The health authority lists public exposures on their website in order to reach any people who may have potentially become infected who they could not contact privately.
"There is no known risk to anyone who attended any listed locations 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," explains Fraser Health.
If you develop any symptoms of COVID-19, please seek testing and then self-isolate, urges the health authority.
