COVID Exposures at Hudson Valley Restaurant, Supermarket, Church
Officials are warning about a number of businesses that may have exposed customers to COVID-19 in the Hudson Valley.
An individual who received a positive COVID-19 test result on Friday dined at the Arnold House in Livingston Manor during their infectious period and may have unintentionally exposed others, officials say.
Sullivan County Public Health Services is advising anyone who was at the restaurant on Sunday, Nov. 15 between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. that they may have been exposed to coronavirus:
“Although we believe that the employees wore masks routinely, many customers may not have been doing the same while seated at tables, and may have been exposed,” Sullivan County Public Health Director Nancy McGraw said. “If someone thinks they have been exposed and develops symptoms, they should self-quarantine for 14 days and call their healthcare provider if symptoms develop, or call Sullivan County Public Health Services at 845-292-5910
