Of the confirmed cases, three are York Region residents, one is a Toronto resident and one is a Simcoe resident and two probable cases are both York Region residents.

After an inspection on March 31, the restaurant was slapped with a $1,000 fine for not having a list of customers for contact tracing and not having a COVID-19 safety plan.

Since the restaurant didn't keep a list, a public notice has been issued and anyone who was there from March 19-24 is asked to isolate for 14 days after their visit and get tested if they have symptoms.
