CLARENDON – People who attended a wedding on Oct. 17 in Clarendon may have been exposed to Covid-19. They are urged to closely monitor themselves for symptoms.

If symptoms appear, they should contact their primary care provider immediately and also self isolate until they receive the results of a Covid test, according to a notice from the Orleans and Genesee County Health Departments.

The wedding on Oct. 17 was on Acton Road in Clarendon, a site with a Bergen address.

“A significant number of known close contacts have been identified through contact tracing and have been placed under mandatory quarantine or isolation,” said Paul Pettit, public health director in the two counties. “However, there are individuals that attended the wedding that were not part of the original guest list and those contacts may not be aware they may have been exposed to the virus.”

Symptoms of Covid-19 include but are not limited to 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.
