Halton officials say that people who ate there between March 8 and March 13 were exposed to a "variant of concern," but don't say which variant it is. 

They want those people to take action now. 

"While Public Health is attempting to call these patrons, this effort may take some time," the notice said. "In the interest of time, we are asking all such patrons to self-isolate for 14 days after their visit to the restaurant, and to get tested for COVID-19."

According to Global News, a spokesperson for Halton Region says that an estimated 200 people could be impacted and that the variant of concern is the B.1.1.7 variant, which was first found in the U.K.
