Interior Health urges anyone at a weekend bush party at the Bombi Summit to monitor themselves for symptoms of COVID-19.

Health officials don't know if anyone at the party between Castlegar and Salmo last Saturday and Sunday had the virus, but said the gathering of about 150 people is cause for concern considering infections have increased across the province because of social gatherings that exceed 50.

Interior Health recommends testing for anyone at the party who develops symptoms.

They include fever, cough, difficulty breathing, or a loss of taste or smell.

Other milder symptoms are a runny nose, fatigue, body aches, diarrhea, headache, sore throat, vomiting and red eyes.

BC Health said there were six new infections last weekend in the Interior.
