The Cayuga County Health Department alerted the public late-Thursday about a potential COVID-19 exposure at Lowe’s on Grant Ave.
An Auburn Lowe’s employee who resides in an adjacent county tested positive for COVID-19 and was working on Monday, June 22nd.
Members of the public who were at the store on Monday between 12 p.m. and 9 p.m. are urged to monitor themselves for symptoms, such as headache, scratchy sore throat, or fever for 14 days.
“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,” health officials said.
“We remind the public that it is still important to practice social distancing staying more than 6 feet apart from others, limiting the number of trips out to stores, and more importantly only sending one member from your household out to do shopping,” officials added. “When out in public, wear a cloth face covering and continue to wash your hands often, cover coughs and sneezes, disinfect surfaces, and stay informed.”
