As an additional precaution, Interior Health is asking those who visited this pharmacy on March 10, 13, 14, or from March 16 to 21 to self-isolate and monitor for symptoms for 14 days from the time of their visit.

Public Health routinely follows up with confirmed cases and close contacts directly to advise on self-isolation.
