An employee of Toronto’s Brass Rail Strip Club may have transmitted the Chinese Wuhan Virus to nearly 500 patrons during a five-day period. I mean, if you’re going to catch the Wu-Flu, this is probably the best way to get it.
The City of Toronto says about 550 people may have been exposed to COVID-19 at a downtown strip club earlier this month.
Toronto Public Health says it is notifying people who visited the Brass Rail Tavern at 701 Yonge St. about a potential exposure.
Officials say an employee who tested positive for the virus was at the club on these dates and times:
Aug. 4 from 7 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. on Aug. 5
Aug. 5 from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. on Aug. 6
Aug. 7 from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. on Aug. 8
Aug. 8 from 7 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. on Aug. 9
“As a precaution, [Toronto Public Health] is advising anyone who attended the Brass Rail Tavern during these dates and times to monitor themselves for COVID-19 symptoms for the 14 days after their last visit during this time period,” the city said in a news release.
Dear Lord, I know these good people may have caught the Wuhan – hopefully from a lap dance – and I know the Toronto Maple Leafs saw yet another quick exit – shock – from the NHL playoffs, but haven’t they suffered enough?
