The Onondaga County Health Department has confirmed three more locations of potential COVID-19 exposures. Members of the public who shopped at the following stores on the days and times listed may have been exposed:

The positive individuals were wearing a mask. The Health Department investigates all COVID-19 cases in Onondaga County and identifies and notifies all close contacts. Anyone who may have been exposed at the locations listed should monitor themselves for symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever, cough, and/or difficulty breathing for 14 days after their potential exposure. If symptoms do develop, stay home and call your doctor for further guidance about testing. If you are elderly, have underlying medical conditions, or are immunocompromised, call your doctor early even if your illness is mild. In an emergency call 911.
Some people who are positive for COVID-19 do not have symptoms, so it is important to stay home as much as possible to slow the spread of COVID-19. IF you need essentials or use of County parks, be sure to stay at least 6 feet away from others at all times and wear a cloth face mask. Continue to wash your hands often, cover coughs and sneezes, disinfect surfaces, and stay informed.
