MOSCOW - Members of the Idaho North Central District of Public Health have confirmed a staff member at 'Tapped-Taphouse & Kitchen' in Moscow who worked on June 23,24,25 has tested positive for COVID-19. In order to follow public health guidelines, the establishment will close for two weeks beginning Tuesday, June 30.
While the risk of exposure to other patrons is unknown, public health officials are recommending that any person who was at the establishment during this timeframe monitor themselves for any of the following symptoms of COVID-19: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, muscle or body aches, sore throat, headache, fatigue, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, congestion or runny nose, or a new loss of taste or smell. Research has shown that symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. If symptoms develop, please contact a healthcare provider for evaluation and potential testing.
In this situation, PH-INCD is not able to identify all individuals who may have potentially been exposed to the confirmed case, which necessitates this public notification. PH-INCD is working with Tapped management, who has been cooperative in this investigation.
“Interactions with others, especially those that occur in close contact, less than 6 feet and without wearing cloth face coverings, puts individuals at greater risk for being exposed and potentially becoming infected with COVID-19. This is why we cannot let our guard down but must continue to practice preventive measures to protect ourselves and others until this pandemic is over,” stated Carol Moehrle, District Director for PH-INCD.
