Contact tracing in progress amongst Brass Rail visitors

Toronto Public Health says a patron at a strip club has tested positive for COVID-19, following an earlier announcement that an employee there had the coronavirus.

The agency said it has attempted to contact all of the approximately 550 people who may have come into contact with the Brass Rail employee who tested positive.

It says the patron who tested positive is from a region outside Toronto, and officials are in touch with the corresponding health unit.

The agency is asking anyone who attended the Brass Rail Tavern from August 4th to 8th to monitor themselves for COVID-19 symptoms.

Toronto Public Health says the strip club is now following pandemic operating guidelines, after an initial investigation found the venue was not following rules.


The agency says it is completing routine inspections of adult entertainment venues throughout the city.
