Cortland County health officials today reported a potential COVID-19 exposure at TJ Nails & Spa on Route 281.
A customer – who was wearing a mask during their visit to the business – later tested positive for the virus.
Contact tracing has since been completed by health department staff.
However, members of the public who were at the business on Monday (August 3) between 3-4 pm should also monitor themselves for symptoms until at least August 17 (14 days).
Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and/ or diarrhea 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.
If you are tested for COVID-19, please stay home and away from other people until you receive your test results.
