UTICA, N.Y. – Oneida County Health Department Director Phyllis Ellis announced several dates and locations of potential exposures to coronavirus on Tuesday.

Ellis says residents were shopping or working at these establishments before knowing they had the virus.

People who were at the following places within the following timeframes should monitor themselves for symptoms for 14 days.

April 19

  • A shopper was at the Walmart located at 5815 Rome-Taberg Road in Rome between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m.
  • A resident was at the Tops located at 217 Erie Blvd. West in Rome between 9:15 a.m. and 10 a.m.
    • Monitor for symptoms through May 3.

April 16, 17 and 20

  • An employee at the Citgo located at 3931 Oneida St. in Washington Mills worked on these dates. The employee was wearing a mask, and only left an enclosed workspace between noon and 1 p.m.
    • Monitor for symptoms through April 30, May 1 and May 4, respectively.

April 15 -18 and 21-22

  • An employee at the Walmart located at 4765 Commercial Drive in New Hartford worked on each of these days from 1 – 10 p.m. The employee was wearing a mask throughout the shifts.
    • Monitor for symptoms through April 29 and 30, or May 1, 2, 5 and 6 depending on the day exposure may have happened.

Ellis says the risk of exposure in all cases was low. If symptoms appear, people are advised to contact their primary care doctors.

Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente announced Monday that Ellis would be issuing an Executive Order requiring retail stores, restaurants and other establishments to enforce the state mandate requiring people to wear face coverings in public places.

Picente said the face covering requirements are in line with CDC guidelines, and exclude people with medical conditions that affect breathing and children under 2 years old.

Non-compliant businesses may face fines and misdemeanor charges if in violation of the order, according to Picente.
