Fraser Health advises patrons to self monitor for symptoms

A popular Pitt Meadows pub is remaining closed for 14 days due to a COVID-19 case.

Fraser Health is advising members of the public to self monitor for symptoms of the virus if they were at the pub, located at 19167 Ford Rd., on Oct. 9, 10, 11, 12 or 14th.

The Jolly Coachman announced that it has been advised by Fraser Health and Worksafe BC to stay closed for two weeks. It will re-open on Oct. 30.

Contractors are installing protective barriers throughout the pub, and staff are awaiting further test results, says a social media notification from the pub management.

Management closed on Oct. 16 when it learned a staff member tested positive for the virus. It sanitized the pub and had staff tested, and had planned to reopen on Oct. 21.
