Franklin County Public Health is alerting Tupper Lakers of a possible COVID-19 exposure.

Anyone who went to the Trails End Tavern on state Route 30 between the hours of noon and 7 p.m. last Wednesday to Friday, Nov. 3 through Nov. 6, may have been exposed to someone with a positive case of COVID-19, the county health department warned.

“If symptoms develop, please self-isolate immediately and call your health care provider to arrange COVID testing,” the health department notice reads.

Fever, cough, trouble breathing, muscle aches, tiredness, headache, sore throat, runny nose, loss of smell or taste, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea are all symptoms of COVID-19.

Those identified as contacts of a positive case through contact tracing will be contacted by the county health department and placed under a legal quarantine for two weeks from the last point of contact with the person who tested positive.

Those who experience symptoms, think they may have been exposed to COVID-19, or those with questions about COVID-19 can reach out to Franklin County’s COVID Hotline at 518-481-1111 any day of the week. The hotline is operational from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day.

Franklin County reported 50 active cases of COVID-19 countywide Wednesday, 10 new cases since Tuesday. An additional COVID-related death was also reported Wednesday, bringing the total number of deaths countywide from COVID-19 to two since March. Both deaths happened this week.
