Barron County Public Health has alerted the public that visitors during specific timeframes at three Rice Lake, Wisconsin, restaurants may have been exposed to COVID-19. 

Those who were at Moose Lodge on Sept. 4. from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Mary's Midway Bar on Sept. 4 from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., and Mr. Bob's Bar on Sept. 5 from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. may have been exposed. 

Anyone who was in those bars during those times and are now exhibiting symptoms are being asked to stay home from work and get tested.

All others are being asked to watch for symptoms over the next 10 days, including:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

"Please note - appearing on this list does not mean the establishment did something wrong," Barron County said. 

"It also does not mean the establishment should be closed. All establishments are contacted before being listed and are given guidance on how to reduce future risk to staff and customers."

The county says it issues public notifications when someone that tested positive for COVID-19 was at a location while symptomatic but before test results were known and there is no way to identify all of the people they came into contact with.
