Tioga County’s Public Health Department released the following listing today that shows public areas where individuals visited in the days prior to testing positive for COVID-19, while they were experiencing symptoms or were asymptomatic but in their infectious period.

Public health reminds our readers that in some cases individuals are tested routinely for COVID-19 for work, before traveling, or prior to having a medical procedure done, and may be asymptomatic before receiving a positive test result.
In a press release, a public health department official wrote, “Help us prevent further spread of the virus by self-quarantining if you visited any of these locations.”
Anyone who becomes symptomatic is encouraged by the health department to contact their health care provider and their local health department. A list of COVID-19 testing locations in our area can be found at covid19.tiogacountyny.com or at the Tioga County Public Health Facebook page.
