COVID-19 ADVISORY #2
The following is a clarification to information included in COVID-19 Advisory #1:
The window of concern on this advisory is limited to potential contacts yesterday and today only.
A person who within the past two days worked in Judge Miguel de la O’s Courtroom 4-7, and Judge Gina Beovides’ Courtroom 2-2 at the Richard E. Gerstein Justice Building, 1351 NW 12 Street, has self-isolated and sought medical care for flu-like symptoms. Medical professionals have advised that they will test for coronavirus COVID-19 if symptoms persist for more than 48 hours.
Persons who have been in either of these two court rooms or in the judicial chambers of Judge de la O (Room 413) or Judge Beovides (Room 214) within the past two days should follow the self-monitoring steps outlined in the Centers for Disease Control website at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/php/risk-assessment.html for the next 14 days:
- Remain alert for subjective fever, cough, or difficulty breathing.
- If they feel feverish or develop cough or difficulty breathing during the self-observation period, they should take their temperature, self-isolate, limit contact with others, and seek advice by telephone from a healthcare provider or their local health department to determine whether medical evaluation is needed.
Self-monitoring means people should monitor themselves for fever by taking their temperatures twice a day and remain alert for cough or difficulty breathing. If they feel feverish or develop measured fever, cough, or difficulty breathing during the self-monitoring period, they should self-isolate, limit contact with others, and seek advice by telephone from a healthcare provider or their local health department to determine whether medical evaluation is needed.
Further updates will be provided as soon as new information becomes available.
