The Haskell County Health Department is notifying anyone that was at the Satanta, KS grade school basketball hoops on Monday July 13 or Tuesday July 14 , that they may have come in contact with a positive case of COVID-19. In general, symptoms usually appear 2 to 14 days after exposure. Individuals with COVID-19 can transmit the virus to others before showing symptoms. This means that the virus can spread between people interacting in close-proximity – such as speaking, singing, coughing, or sneezing – even if those people are not exhibiting symptoms. We are asking people that develop symptoms to contact their healthcare provider, local health department, or hospital for directions on what they should do and we ask that they tell them of their attendance at this event.
Symptoms may include: fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, fatigue, congestion, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, chills shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, headache, runny nose, abdominal pain or discomfort, and pain in hands or feet.
We encourage all individuals to continue taking precautions to limit the spread of the disease: wash your hands frequently, cover your mouth if you cough or sneeze, wear a mask in public, social distance and stay home if you are ill. Questions regarding this may be directed to the Haskell County Health Department at 620-675-8191.
