“For a long time, there have been a stigma attached with getting COVID, right? Oh, you got COVID? Well, guess what, even people who are doing their absolute best to protect themselves and their loved ones, people who are doing all the right things, you know, getting vaccinated, whatnot, sometimes, they too can be infected. We believe some of that stigma has been removed, and it’s just another tool — we have to share information”Brooks Baehr, DOH spokesperson
Previously, the DOH would not publish this kind of specific information unless the event operator and/or location were not cooperating or were unable to contact those who may have been exposed.
Officials urge everyone who attended any of these venues and events to get tested for COVID-19 as soon as possible.
