The Seneca County Health Department is warning residents of three possible exposures to COVID-19 in recent days.
The exposure occurred on March 12 and March 13 at locations including Mojo’s Tavern, F-n-A’s, and the Waterloo VFW- all in Waterloo.
The signs and symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, headache, sore throat, and a new loss of sense of taste or smell.
Risk of exposure in these cases is low, but the potential for contracting COVID-19 still exists, which is why health officials said they announced the possible exposure.
“Now that the COVID vaccine is available, it is not the time to relax our preventative measures. It is important that we remain vigilant and continue to maintain our social distancing, masking, and disinfecting practices,” said Vickie Swinehart, director of public health for Seneca County.
