POTSDAM, N.Y. (WWNY) - Public Health officials are broadening the scope of their warning for people who might have come into contact with the coronavirus at a Potsdam business.

Earlier this week, officials in St. Lawrence County raised the red flag for anyone who might have been at ½ Ton’s Bar and Grill at 141½ Market Street from 6 to 10 p.m. on July 11.

Now, they’re also alerting of possible COVID-19 exposure for people who were there from 4 to 7 p.m. on July 8, 4 to 8 p.m. on July 10, and 3:30 to 10 p.m. on July 11.

Anyone who thinks they may have been at the business during those times are asked to call Public Health at 315-386-2325.

Officials ask people to monitor their temperatures twice a day for 14 days.

Anyone who develops symptoms are advised to call their health care provider for further guidance and tell them they may have been exposed to the virus.

Symptoms include fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea.

Testing is available through local hospital systems.
