The Facilities Management is responding quickly to the positive case. We appreciate the cooperation to find those who could be exposed, and Public Health only publishes the business names and locations 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 reopening of some segments of society over the last few 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.
