We recommend that everyone, regardless of vaccination status, who was at the pub on these days and times:

  • Get tested at a local assessment centre or pharmacy:
  • Monitor for symptoms carefully, even mild ones
  • If you have or develop symptoms:
    • Everyone in your household (unless they are fully vaccinated) must also stay home until you get a negative COVID-19 test result, or you are cleared by public health, or you are diagnosed with another illness.
  • Continue with public health precautions to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
  • Stay home if you are sick
  • Practice physical distancing – stay 2 meters (6 feet) away from people in public areas
  • Wear a face covering: Minimum of 2 layers of material; 3 will provide further protection when you cannot stay 6 feet away from people out in public – and in indoor public spaces as required
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, or use hand sanitizer after being in touch with others or handling anything from outside your home
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue or into your arm, not your hands
