Broome Restaurant is Possible COVID Exposure Site Again
A Broome County restaurant that had a positive test for the coronavirus early in the pandemic back in April is again identified as a possible exposure site.
The Broome County Health Department last week announced a person at the Greek House Restaurant on Main Street in Westover August 18 between 11 a.m. and noon had tested positive and anyone who had been at the business at that time should self-quarantine until September 2.
All residents are reminded to wear masks when out in public, maintain a six-foot distance between individuals and frequently wash hands and sanitize commonly touched surfaces.
