Coronavirus positive people DID visit Branson!

Quote:
There is a need for public warning on the activities and that the international travelers who visited this city and the impending case could have put members of the public at risk," said Springfield-Greene County Health Department Director, Clay Goddard.

People at locations on these dates below are at low risk for contracting COVID-19, but should monitor for symptoms. There is no need to self-quarantine or isolate unless symptoms develop.

LOCATIONS:

On Thursday, March 5, the international travelers and our fourth case had lunch in the upstairs area of Bruno’s Italian Restaurant. They then shopped at Branson Landing.

On Friday, March 6, the international travelers had breakfast at Hemingway’s and shopped at Bass Pro.

On Thursday, March 12, the case had a dinner meeting in a private room at Ocean Zen.

Although they are saying "low risk", there were people in Branson known to be infected. How many that aren't known, yet, is the question. Also the reason that Branson needs to be serious about taking action to mitigate the spread. Lose a couple months, or lose the entire year? A few shows, restaurants, and attractions that are already just hanging on might close with a loss of two months. A year might mean everything is lost.

I'm just tossing this out there -
Someone you know has Covid-19 today - you just don't know who it is.

To get Covid-19 you must be close to one another - the virus travels approx 6-10 feet with a sneeze - so DISTANCE works.

The virus will live on surfaces -so WASH YOUR hands, someone else probably touched the gas pump, elevator button, hand rail or door knob prior to you. Wash your hands and clean your own door knobs. Keep your hands away from your face.

I work in a very high risk patient oriented environment - we can safely take care of them by distancing ourselves and practicing good hygiene. It is also important to remember that if you have a temperature of 100.4 or higher and a cough you should quarantine yourself - call your PCP if you have difficulty breathing. (use your mychart contact to have a virtual appointment with your doctor vs. presenting to the office if at all possible)

For all we know, there could have been a multitude of people exposed to this individual on March 5th when they were in Branson. And then more people were exposed to those people, and on and on. The possibilities are scary as hell after hearing how contagious this is. I heard the big ferris wheel on 76 was still open today. I really have no words for that except they were warned.

The coaster across from WM on 76 was open and doing a pretty good business, or so it appeared.
