Starbucks management is responding quickly to the positive case. They have sent their employees to be tested and have contacted the specific customers they can identify. We appreciate Starbucks cooperation to find those who could be exposed, and Public Health only publishes this business’ name and location because it is impossible to specifically identify everyone in the public who could have been exposed.

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 making decisions that might affect their health and the health of the community. We appreciate the cooperation of the above local businesses to find those who  could be exposed, and Public Health only publishes their names when we are unable to specifically identify everyone in the public who could have been exposed.

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.

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at matthewplafever@gmail.com if you know a story that needs to be told.
