The Mendocino County COVID-19 Department Operations Center has  confirmed positive COVID-19 case at the following location: 

Applebee’s Grill + Bar 

1201 Airport Park Blvd, Ukiah, CA 95482 

Members of the public who visited this facility on the dates of Thursday, July 29th and Saturday, July 31st 2021 may have been exposed to COVID-19, and are advised to seek  COVID-19 testing if unvaccinated, or seek testing if exhibiting symptoms while vaccinated.  Covid-19 Testing 

Applebee’s Grill & Bar’s 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 Applebee’s Grill & Bar’s 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 own health and the health of  the community.  

Public 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. 

We ask that the community stay vigilant and follow the guidance outlined by the California  Department of Public Health and Mendocino County Public Health. For more information  about COVID-19 vaccines, testing, and masking, contact the Mendocino County Public  Health COVID19 Call Center at (707) 472-2759 or visit our website at: http://www.mendocinocounty.org/covid19

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.
