Any symptoms of illness or worsening of allergy symptoms, especially if allergies are not relieved by over the counter medications should be considered suspect COVID-19. Please stay home and contact your doctor to be tested.
“We need people to be overly cautious and stay home with any sign of illness,” said Laura Sauve, Health Officer with Barron County Public Health. “No one ever thinks it will happen to them, but the reality is, it is happening to a lot of people and the best way to slow the spread is to stay home when you don’t feel well and get a COVID test.”
