A hookah bar next door was also flagged.
If you've been raving recently in B.C., you better pay attention. The Fraser Health Authority has issued an alert about COVID-19 exposure at a Surrey rave. The event took place over the long weekend between Friday, July 31 and Sunday, August 2.
According to Fraser Health's exposure alert, the party was called "Royal Jerk Spot Weekend Summer Fest Day and Night Rave."
It was endorsed and hosted by Royal Beauty Supply at their location at 13553 105A Avenue. Per the business's Facebook page, they are a beauty supply shop as well as a hair salon.
Narcity reached out to the owner of the shop but they declined to give their name.
Anyone who attended the rave between 10:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. on both nights on Friday, July 31 and Saturday, August 1 is being cautioned for COVID-19 risk.
Another COVID-19 exposure alert has been issued a Hookah Lounge at 10609 King George Hwy. The hookah bar wasn't identified by Fraser Health.
