York Region Public Health officials are warning diners about some particularly extensive COVID-19 cases from a Vaughan restaurant.

Up to 105 patrons of the Avenue Cibi e Vini have been identified as "high-risk contacts" after potentially interacting with staff cases at the restaurant in late March/early April.

In a press release published on Tuesday, April 13, public health officials said anyone who dined at the restaurant from March 30 to April 1 should self-isolate for 14 days, monitor for symptoms and get tested if necessary.

The restaurant closed on April 1, but officials said they're having trouble reaching out to high-risk contacts because of "incomplete contact information."

"As COVID-19 continues to circulate in the community, residents are reminded to follow public health advice to stay home except for essential trips into the community, wash hands often, practice physical distancing of two metres with anyone outside of your household, wear a mask in public spaces and remain at home if you are sick," officials said.
