County health officials confirmed a positive case of COVID-19 in an employee at the Dunkin Donuts inside the Speedway at 162 Tompkins Street in Cortland.
The worker was wearing a mask during their shift, but anyone who visited the store on Monday, September 7 between 1 – 7:00 pm should monitor for symptoms through September 22.
Signs of the virus 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.
If symptoms do develop, stay home and call your doctor for further guidance about testing — unless you are elderly, have underlying medical conditions, or are immunocompromised, in which case you should call your doctor early even if your illness is mild.
In an emergency call 911.
“It is important that residents remain diligent and continue to do their part to limit the spread of COVID-19,” says Clerk of the Cortland County Legislature Eric Mulvihill. “Please continue to protect yourself and others by wearing a face covering when you are out in public, maintain social distancing, wash your hands and stay home when ill. These guidelines are for all of our protection to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community.”
