The Taney County Health Department is reporting a new case of COVID-19 along with four potential public exposures.
The new case is a close contact to a previously confirmed case and is isolating at home. All close contacts of the person are in the process of being notified by TCHD personnel.
TCHD announced the following public exposures:
Sunday, June 7
- Home Depot 2:45- 3:00 pm (unmasked)
- Target 3:00-3:15 pm (masked)
- Shopping at Walmart on Branson Hills Parkway 3:30- 4:15 (masked)
Monday, June 8
- Starbucks at Target 11:00 – 11:15am (masked)
Anyone who visited those locations during the time of the infected patient should monitor for COVID-19 symptoms but do not need to self-quarantine. If you do begin to experience symptoms, contact your primary care provider.
TCHD officials say that continuing to social distance and wearing masks are two major steps the public can take to help stop the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19.
