Northeast Tri County Health District (NETCHD) has been investigating a positive COVID-19 case that attended the Arden Old Timers Rodeo, Saturday, May 15, 2021. Given the nature of the event it is difficult to identify close contacts, therefore the extent of potential exposure is unknown at this time.
If you attended this event or participated in social gatherings following this event and are not fully vaccinated, you are advised to:
If you are awaiting results from testing, it is imperative you stay home. This simple action not only protects others from getting severely ill but prevents the unnecessary spread of the virus in our communities. As we have seen nationally and locally, attending an event while infectious has potential to cause an outbreak that spreads rapidly, resulting in significant impacts on people’s health and the community.
Attending events that may pose a greater risk of exposure also increases your responsibility. If you learn you have COVID-19 and have exposed others during your infectious period, it is crucial you identify and notify all close contacts to prevent further spread and allow everyone to make an educated decision about their own health. NETCHD is here to help you with this process but your cooperation is necessary.
Recent community outbreaks continue to illustrate the importance of continued non-pharmaceutical interventions, such as, staying home when ill, social distancing and wearing a mask if not fully vaccinated; and getting vaccinated. A growing number of studies pertaining to the vaccines are consistently showing:
Everyone ages 12 and older are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Free vaccinations are available at multiple local health care providers and pharmacies or through Northeast Tri County Health District.
