Did You Attend the Fort Bragg City Council Meeting on Monday? Consider Taking a COVID-19 Test

The following is a press release published by the City of Fort Bragg:


The City of Fort Bragg is fortunate to have engaged citizens who actively participate in the local political process. Monday’s, June 27, 2022 City Council meeting in particular, exemplified our engaged citizenship with a large number of in-person attendees providing public comment.

The City has been notified of an attendee of the recent City Council meeting that tested positive yesterday. As a result, the City of Fort Bragg encourages citizens who attended the City Council meeting in-person on Monday, June 27th to take a Covid test and follow appropriate protocols to limit exposure.

As a reminder to all, we can all limit the transmission of COVID-19 with a few simple steps:

  • Continue masking indoors in public places. Masks are still required for everyone in some settings, including public transit and long-term care facilities.
  • Keep gatherings small (less than 25), outdoors if possible, especially if food is served.
  • Test using PCR or Rapid Antigen Test before travel, gatherings or visits. Tests are available over the counter, through your provider, or at County test sites.
  • Stay home if you test positive, or if you have symptoms. If you might have COVID, call your medical provider quickly for a very effective antiviral prescription.
  • Follow guidance regarding isolation and/or quarantine measures to prevent further infection.
