Patrons of Willits’s Rite Aid Recommended to Test or Watch for Symptoms After COVID-19 Cased Traced to Location


The following is a press released published by Mendocino County Public Health:

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

Rite Aid
1730 S Main St, Willits, CA 95490

Members of the public who visited this facility between the dates of Friday October 29th and Sunday October 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

Rite Aid management is responding quickly to the positive case. We appreciate their cooperation to find those who could be exposed, and Public Health only publishes the businesses names and locations because it is impossible to identify everyone in the public who could have been exposed.

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:
