CATSKILLS – A total of three people have tested positive for COVID-19 at two area restaurants.
Greene County Government reported that two patrons who dined in at the Barnwood Restaurant in Catskill have tested positive for the virus.
A person who dined at the Arnold House at 839 Shandelee Road in Livingston Manor also tested positive, Sullivan County health officials said.
If you had in-person service at the Barnwood on November 17 between 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. you may have been exposed to COVID-19, officials said.
They advised that patrons should monitor symptoms including sore throat, cough, fever, loss of taste or smell, and/or body aches. The officials said if you are or become symptomatic, isolate until you can be tested.
Sullivan County health officials said an individual received a positive COVID-19 test result on Friday and had dined at the Arnold House during their infectious period. Others there may have been unintentionally exposed.
County health officials are advising anyone who was at the restaurant on November 15 between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. should monitor for symptoms.
“Although we believe that the employees wore masks routinely, many customers may not have been doing the same while seated at tables, and may have been exposed,” said Public Health Director Nancy McGraw. “If someone thinks they have been exposed and develops symptoms, they should self-quarantine for 14 days and call their healthcare provider if symptoms develop or call the county public health services at 845-292-5910.
