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

Jack in the Box

Rite Aid 

680 S State St, Ukiah, CA 

Members of the public who visited these facilities between the dates of Sunday, August 8th and Monday, August 9th 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 

Both facilities’ management is responding quickly to the positive case and have sent their  employees to be tested. We appreciate the cooperation to find those who could be exposed,  and Public Health only publishes businesses’ 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 the transmissibility of the  Delta variant and the 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.
