WAMPSVILLE, N.Y. – With coronavirus cases on the rise across the region, the Madison County Health Department is no longer releasing invidivual potential exposure locations, saying residents should treat every public establishment as a place of exposure.
Public Health Director Eric Faisst says people should constantly be monitoring themselves for symptoms, and stay home if they feel sick.
“Over the past few weeks, we have seen our numbers climb dramatically in Madison County, and our surrounding communities. Residents should assume that if you are out anywhere you can be exposed to COVID-19,” said Faisst. “We ask that if you feel sick, even if you think it is just a cold or allergies, please stay home. Ask someone else to run your errands for you, this will help limit potential public exposures.”
There are two upcoming mobile testing clinics in Madison County, available for free to anyone who wants to be tested for COVID-19.
One clinic will be held on Thursday, Nov. 19 and the next on Thursday, Dec. 3. Both will take place at the Madison County Office Building, 138 N. Court St. in Wampsville, from 4 – 8 p.m.
