Four people connected to the Redcliff Legion are in self-isolation after testing positive for COVID-19.
The Redcliff Legion confirmed to the Cypress Courier the positive cases were among staff members.
“All the people are isolated. They’re all doing reasonably well,” said Peter Devlin, Legion president.
The Redcliff Legion has been closed since Oct. 27 and will not reopen until Nov. 13.
The Legion confirmed its first case on Oct. 29.
“I went for testing-everybody else went for testing- and some of the tests coming back, there were more positive cases,” said Devlin.
It was on Nov. 1, the Legion has its fourth case and Devlin decided to cancel Remembrance Day this year for the people’s safety.
Devlin says the Legion has been doing their own due diligence by reaching out to different groups that used the facility.
“We called them and told them this is what’s going on,” he said.
“We told them if you were there on Oct. 23, 24 or 27 that we would suggest that you go and get tested for your own piece of mind.”
Devlin said, “Before the Legion reopens I’m cleaning it. I’ve already cleaned it once on Oct. 30 because I was going to open on Oct. 31. Then I’m getting it cleaned again before we open on Nov. 13.”
Masks will be mandatory in the Legion, unless they are eating or drinking.
