Possible public exposure to COVID-19 at Oneida Walmart


WAMPSVILLE — The Madison County Health Department has learned of possible public exposure to COVID-19.

Members of the public who visited Walmart at 2024 Genesee St. in Oneida on July 30 between 1 and 3 p.m. should watch for symptoms of COVID-19 to develop through Aug. 13. The person infected with COVID-19 was wearing a face-covering while in Walmart.

Symptoms to look for include fever, cough, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, and/or unable to catch your breath. If you develop any of these symptoms, stay home, and call your doctor to find out if you should get tested. If you have emergency warning signs of COVID-19, such as trouble breathing, pain or pressure in the chest, new confusion or trouble waking up, or bluish lips or face, call 911 and get medical help immediately.

The safest way to protect yourself from COVID-19 is to maintain at least 6 feet of distance from anyone not in your household, wear a face covering when unable to keep your distance, and wash your hands often. It is especially important to wear a face-covering over your nose and mouth when in public. If we all take these steps to limit contact with people, we will have the best chance of limiting the spread of COVID-19.
