Two downtown restaurants linked with 10 COVID-19 cases

Toronto Public Health said seven people who tested positive for COVID-19 recently frequented the same Yonge St. restaurant.

The health department said that of the seven, five are staff members and two are patrons of the Yonge Street Warehouse, north of Dundas St., between Sept. 10-17.

Around 1,700 people may have frequented the restaurant during those days and TPH is notifying the public of the possible exposure to COVID-19.

The department said through contact tracing, health officials already followed up with all known close contacts and those people have been told to self-isolate for 14 days and go get tested.

“If you were at the Yonge Street Warehouse between September 10-17 but have not been contacted by TPH, you are not identified as a close contact. You are viewed as low risk,” said a statement released Saturday.

They noted anyone who was there during that time frame to monitor their symptoms.

On Sunday, the agency said three workers at Regulars Bar — located at 668 King St. W. — also tested positive over the last few days.

The potential exposure period is Sept. 13-22 and the department estimates some 600 people may have been at the bar during this time.

“TPH has followed up with all known close contacts. The close contacts have been asked to self-isolate for 14 days and to go for testing,” health officials said in a statement.

As a precaution, anyone who went to this bar during that time is asked to monitor themselves for COVID-19 symptoms for 14 days after their visit.
