Golfers who were at the Pine Crest Golf Club at 2455 Base Line in Peterborough County from June 11 to 13 should be aware that a staff person there has tested positive for COVID-19.
Peterborough Public Health considers the situation to be a low-risk exposure for most people who were at the golf club during that time, according to a media release, and has already contacted members of the club and staff with instructions.
However, as the health unit does not have contact information for all golfers who were at the club during this time, and since there is a potential for a high-risk exposure and transmission of the virus in certain situations, the health unit is issuing a public notification.
Anyone who conducted a transaction with the mobile beverage cart operator — by talking with the operator, purchasing an item, of giving a tip — from June 11 to 13, wasn’t wearing a mask at the time, and was not fully immunized with two doses of COVID-19 vaccine (receiving the second dose May 28 or earlier), may be at risk.
The health unit stresses that only golfers who meet all of the above criteria are considered a high-risk exposure.
Peterborough Public Health recommends that anyone meeting all the above criteria should self-isolate immediately, arrange for COVID-19 testing as soon as possible, and monitor for symptoms.
