Maine CDC Reports Potential COVID-19 Exposure at Ogunquit Restaurant
September 22, 2020
AUGUSTA – The Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention (Maine CDC) reported today that patrons of the Ogunquit Beach Lobster House in Ogunquit may have been exposed to COVID-19 after three employees there tested positive for the virus.
Maine CDC has opened an outbreak investigation and is conducting contact tracing. Individuals who dined or worked at the establishment between September 12, 2020, and September 18, 2020, could have been exposed to the virus and should monitor themselves for symptoms. Those determined to be close contacts of confirmed cases must quarantine for 14 days and should consult their medical providers about testing.
Individuals who think they need a COVID-19 test, with or without symptoms, may get one under the Department of Health and Human Services’ Standing Order (PDF). A list of sites providing tests under the Standing Order is available on the Keep Maine Healthy website. This list includes DHHS-sponsored swab and send sites that offer testing at no charge.
COVID-19 symptoms include cough, fever, shortness of breath, fatigue, or body aches among many others. A comprehensive list of symptoms can be found at cdc.gov.
Individuals who experience any symptoms of COVID-19 or who otherwise do not feel well should not go out in public, including for work, travel, school, or gatherings of any size.
Maine people can protect their health and prevent the spread of COVID-19 by washing their hands often, staying at least 6 feet apart, and wearing a face covering in public places, especially when physical distancing is difficult to maintain.
