      Three restaurants in Vancouver have had potential COVID-19 exposure events in recent weeks.

      Over the past week, Vancouver Coastal Health added the following restaurants to its list of public exposure events.

      One of the establishments was Denny’s (622 Southwest Marine Drive) in South Vancouver, which had potential exposures during operating hours from December 26 to January 5.

      Two restaurants had potential exposure events on New Year’s Eve (December 31).

      One was the Kitsilano location of Nook Restaurant (1525 Yew Street), which had a potential exposure during operating hours. 

      On January 9, Nook (which has four locations) stated that three staff members tested positive and that the restaurant would be temporarily closed as a precaution to protect staff and guests. The location reopened on January 15.

      On the same day, Park Drive Restaurant (1815 Commercial Drive) had a potential exposure from 3 to 9 p.m.

      This restaurant previously had experienced an exposure event back on September 26.

      B.C. provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry has previously said at a few briefings that food and beverages establishments that are following strong safety plans are safe to visit.
