The following is a press release issued by Mendocino County Public Health
As of June 10, 2021, Applebee’s Restaurant at 1201 Airport Park Blvd, Ukiah, CA 95482, and Diggers Bar, 244 S. Main St, Willits, CA 95490 have been confirmed to have one positive COVID-19 case each among their staff. Therefore, members of the public and restaurant staff who are not fully vaccinated and who were at Applebee’s Restaurant between the dates of June 4-7, 2021 or Diggers Bar between the dates of June 3-5, 2021, are asked to get tested and closely monitor for symptoms of COVID-19. Testing is available in Ukiah Sunday through Thursday at the Ukiah Fairgrounds from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM.
These cases coincide with an overall increase in COVID-19 cases during the past 6 weeks in Mendocino County. Given the rise in positive cases, Health Officer Dr. Andy Coren would like to emphasize the importance of staying home from work when exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19. Common symptoms are fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Other symptoms may include chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, fatigue, congestion, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or new loss of taste or smell. In addition, we hope employers will encourage vaccination for their staff to reduce the possibility of outbreaks and protect all of our communities from COVID-19.
We ask that the community stay vigilant and follow the guidance outlined by the California Department of Public Health and Mendocino County Public Health.
