Photos and videos are being shared online of a St. John’s bar and crowds drinking and dancing while blatantly ignoring social distancing. The photos and video are reminiscent of a time before COVID-19, shockingly they are from this past weekend.
Only days after the Atlantic travel bubble was put in place the photos taken at The Rob Roy & Konfusion located on George Street in downtown St. John’s are leaving many who view them in shock.
“On behalf of our establishments, we recognize that this weekend presented some moments that were of concern.” The Rob Roy & Konfusion told Nova Scotia Buzz in a statement.
“Our staff is working hard to ensure a socially safe environment inside our establishment, while outside, the public authorities we partner with are leading all governance around how people distance. But in these early days of trying to get things right, issues and opportunities for improvement are presenting themselves left and right.”
“We are committed to our loyal patrons, our hard-working staff, and the public to get things right as we continue to establish our new normal in the face of these challenges.”
Although Newfoundland currently has zero cases, other provinces in the travel bubble currently do. Prince Edward Island hadn’t reported a case for over two months but are now reporting five cases. New Brunswick currently has one active case. Here in Nova Scotia, there are four active cases.
