The Seneca County Health Department confirmed on Tuesday that a patron at Fall Street Brewing located in Seneca Falls tested positive for the Novel Coronavirus or COVID-19.
The positive individual is being monitored by the Seneca County Health Department.
Individuals who were at Fall Street Brewing in the afternoon of July 11th between the hours of 2 – 5 p.m. should monitor themselves for symptoms of COVID- 19. If symptoms develop we encourage patrons to get tested.
Below is a statement from Brad Ellis, owner of Fall Street Brewing, that he posted to Facebook on Tuesday evening:
“Hey fellow earthlings! I feel compelled to jump in front of this news and be as transparent and communicative as possible to our loyal customers. As you may have already read, a patron who visited almost TWO WEEKS ago tested positive for COVID-19. The person who visited us was not symptomatic at the time (yes, we realize that it can still spread)
There are friends and customers who are probably concerned for Anna and I, since we are the ones whom primarily run and operate the shop. We are 100% healthy and feeling great. We plan on opening up this week as we normally do. As most of you know, we aren’t ones to shy away from a hard situation.
It is worth mentioning that mask wearing, social distancing and being fastidious with cleaning and wiping surfaces has made all of the difference. We will continue to practice the recommended guidelines to keep everyone safe while visiting our beloved brewery. We hope you will do the same as you continue to support us.
Symptoms of COVID-19 range from mild symptoms to severe illness and usually appear 2-14 days after exposure.
Indoor activities pose a greater risk therefore individuals must be aware of their surroundings and evaluate their risk of exposure and the risk that they may pose to others when deciding to go out.
“We are strongly recommending residents remain vigilant and adhere to masking rules and social distancing and non-essential gathering guidelines to reduce their risk of exposure to COVID-19,” Seneca County officials said in a statement.
