LIBERTY – Sullivan County Public Health Services is alerting anyone who visited the Autozone Auto Parts store at 1985 Route 52 in Liberty on October 17 or 18 that they may have been exposed to an employee who tested positive for COVID-19.
The employee worked from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. on both dates.
County Public Health Director Nancy McGraw said although they believe the employees wore masks all the time, many customers may not have been doing the same and may have been exposed.
She said if someone thinks they have been exposed to the virus and develop symptoms, they should self-quarantine for 14 days and call their doctor.
Anyone who tests positive will go into mandatory isolation and as close contacts are identified, they are encouraged to seek a test and are ordered into mandatory quarantine.
Symptoms may show up between two and 14 days after exposure to the virus. They could include fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing.
Regardless of whether you were in Liberty on either of those two days, wear a mask, wash your hands often, use hand sanitizer and practice social distancing.
