The brass rail (toronto)
A person who visited a downtown Toronto strip club at the same time an employee infected with COVID was on duty earlier this month has now also tested positive for the virus, but officials cannot yet definitively say if the visitor and employee's cases are linked. An employee of the Brass Rail Tavern at Yonge Street who last worked on August 9 later tested positive for novel coronavirus infectionprompting Toronto Public Health to warn other employees and attendees of the establishment of possible exposure.
Vinita Dubey told CP Dubey had earlier advised that the contact tracing logs of the establishment were not complete, prompting her office to issue a blanket warning to anyone who had been there earlier in the month. Toronto Mayor John Tory said the incident continues to prove the need for contact tracing logs at all restaurants, bars and nightclubs. There is a person who tested positive, now we can call other people and let them know as well.
Last Friday, officials inspected the strip club for a second time and say that unlike the first inspection; the Brass Rail was seen to be following physical distancing guidelines. Strip clubs were allowed to reopen in Ontario as part of Stage 3 of reopening, provided lap dances were not provided.
Dubey says Toronto Public Health and bylaw enforcement will be conducting rolling checks on strip clubs throughout the city. Search Search CP24 X. She says anyone who develops symptoms consistent with the virus should immediately get tested. News Tips Report Errors.
