Locations visited by 12th case released
The Barry County Health Department has reported locations that were visited by the 12th confirmed case of COVID-19 in Barry County.
“Out of an abundance of caution, we are releasing a list of locations a COVID-19 positive individual has visited in Barry County,” said Administrator Roger Brock. “The individual is in isolation and close contacts are being notified to quarantine.”
The Barry County Health Department is notifying the public of these potential exposures from a COVID-19 positive individual.
A recent positive case attended:
• June 10, Walmart in Cassville from 1:30 p.m. to 2 p.m.
• June 11, A & J Sporting Goods in Cassville from 9:30 a.m. to 10:10 a.m.
• June 11, Uncle Roy’s in Eagle Rock from noon to 12:30 p.m.
People visiting these locations on these dates, who did not have close contact, are at low risk of contracting COVID-19, but they should monitor for symptoms. COVID-19 symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath or at least two of the following: fever, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell.
Symptoms may begin two days to two weeks after exposure.
There is no need for self-quarantine or isolate unless symptoms develop. Anyone who develops symptoms should call their primary care provider or the Barry County Health Department at 417-847-2114.
“This is an important reminder that even though we are reopening Barry County, COVID-19 is still present in our community and we must take all possible precautions,” Brock said. “When we go out, we should practice physical distancing, wear a cloth face covering and wash our hands often.”
