One case investigation has determined that there has been a low-risk community exposure for those people who were in the Subway (404 E St) in David City, NE, on
- Monday, May 4, 2020 from 10:20 am–3:00 pm
- Tuesday, May 5, 2020 from 10:45 am—2:30 pm
- Wednesday May 6, 2020 from 9:30 am—3:00 pm.
This is considered a LOW-RISK exposure because the individual wore a mask during their time at Subway. The team at the Subway location actively disinfects surfaces, promotes handwashing, has installed plexiglass shields, and has a sanitation program in place as part of their infection control protocols. Management at Subway requires social distancing in the venue and the use of masks by staff. In addition, there is no current evidence that takeout or drive-thru meals will increase the chances of getting sick with COVID-19.
Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, shortness of breath. Some have experienced a sore throat, a loss of taste and/or smell, headache and extreme tiredness. If you are experiencing these symptoms, call your medical provider to see if you may need to be tested.
