Camden County health officials identify places COVID-19 patient may have visited


The Camden County Health Department said the county's first and only COVID-19 case is not travel-related.

According to a post on Facebook, officials have notified the people who were most at risk of prolonged close contact with the person and told to self-isolate for two weeks.

The post said the person did go to some local businesses before developing symptoms. The department said this means the actual risk of transmission at the stores is "very low."

Officials said the person may have visited the following locations between March 13 to 19:

  • Nauti-fish
  • Walmart in Camdenton
  • Woods in Sunrise Beach
  • Dollar General on F Road
  • Camdenton Bus Barn
  • Hurricane Deck School

Camdenton R-III Superintendent Tim Hadfield said Tuesday district parents and staff members were notified about possible exposure to COVID-19.

Hadfield said he was told by the Camden County Health Department that some students and staff members could have come into contact with someone who tested positive for novel coronavirus.

Hadfield said students can still speak with school nurses by phone.

The school district is also offering free meal pick-ups for students on Wednesday at Camdenton High School. Hadfield said the student needs to be with parents when the meals are picked up.
