Six confirmed cases of COVID-19 are being linked to fitness classes held at the Aurora Fit Body Boot Camp last week.
York Region Public Health has issued a public notice today for the cluster of COVID-19 cases confirmed for class participants at the facility at 255 Industrial Parkway South between Monday, Nov. 9 and Saturday, Nov. 14 from 5:45 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. each day.
Since notified of the first confirmed case on Nov. 14, the public health unit has confirmed a further five cases, all of whom are York Region residents.
The fitness classes had a maximum capacity of eight individuals, the notice states.
"Aurora Fit Body Boot Camp and its patrons have been acting in compliance with current public health measures, including physical distancing, not sharing equipment, and use of hand sanitizer and disinfectant," according to York Region spokesperson Patrick Casey. "However, during a fitness class, face coverings or masks are not worn by those participating."
The risk of exposure is low risk, he said, but to support public health in contact tracing and notification to individuals, residents who attended any of the fitness classes should follow these guidelines:
- Self-monitor for 14 days until Sunday, Nov. 29, 2020
- If symptoms of COVID-19 develop, go to a COVID-19 assessment centre and continue to isolate while waiting for your results
- Call the public health unit and advise you attended fitness classes at this location during the dates and times noted above.
York Region Public Health is conducting case and contact management activities associated with the confirmed COVID-19 cases.
