Broome County Reports Gym, Drive-Up and Bus Exposures
The Broome County Health Department says it has learned of people at more businesses who have tested positive for the coronavirus that may have infected others at those locations recently.
A person at Dos Rios Cantina on Court Street October 4 between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. tested positive. Another case is Bath & Body Works on the Vestal Parkway East October 4 between 9:30 a.m. and 3:45 p.m., SONIC Restaurant on Upper Front Street Binghamton October 4 between 5 and 9:30 p.m.* and American Family Fitness on the Vestal Parkway October 5 through the 10th at various times. If you were at that location any of those days between 6 and 8 a.m. and/or noon and 2 p.m., October 9 between 1 and 2:30 p.m. or October 10 between 7 and 8:30 a.m, you should self-quarantine for 14 days from exposure.
A person riding BC Transit Bus #35 October 8 between 12:20 and 1:30 p.m. or 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. also tested positive and other riders on the bus should self-quarantine until October 23.
* We asked a spokesperson for the County Executive's office about the SONIC exposure notification. They said "Exposure time is within 6 feet for 10 or more minutes, so, typically, if you are going through a drive thru, you are not face-to-face with someone for 20 or more minutes." We're still trying to clarify how the advisory relates to SONIC that has no eat-in facilities.
