City of Toronto Health officials have advised that anyone who visited North York General Hospital during this period should voluntarily quarantine themselves for 10 days.

\"It is with the health and safety of our perfomers, our fans and their friends and loved ones foremost on our minds that we regret that this Sunday\'s show has been cancelled,\" read the press release. The show was scheduled for the Birchmount bar and restaurant in Scarborough.

The SARS virus has reappeared at two Toronto hospitals, and officals have said that this round the virus is \"institutionalized\" in the facilities.
