The following is a press release issued by Mendocino County Public Health:
Public Notice: Positive COVID-19 Cases Identified among: Jensen’s Restaurant and Willits Frontier Days events.
Frontier Days June 25th – July 4th, 2021.
Jensen’s Restaurant June 28th – July 1st, 2021.
With these confirmed cases, members of the public who have attended either location or event might have been exposed to COVID-19, and are advised to seek COVID-19 testing if unvaccinated, or to seek testing if exhibiting symptoms while vaccinated.
At least five people who attended Willits Frontier Days, and two employees of Jensen’s Restaurant (1550 Lovers Lane, Ukiah) have recently tested Positive for COVID-19.
Public Health is prepared for the possibility of outbreaks due to increased close contact during the summer months. Public Health still urges members of the public to exercise their best judgment when choosing to attend events that might carry with them a higher risk of exposure
Investigations are underway to determine the extent that these individuals might have had close contact with the public. Jensen’s Restaurant reported their two cases to Public Health, and those individuals are currently in isolation. We appreciate Jensen’s and Frontier Days efforts to find those who could be exposed, and Public Health only publishes their names since we are unable to identify everyone in the public who could have been exposed.
Public Health Officers Dr. Andy Coren and Dr. Noemi Doohan 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.
We ask that the community stay vigilant and follow the guidance outlined by the California Department of Public Health and Mendocino County Public Health.
