Eau Claire County Reports Potential Exposures to COVID-19 at two Water Street Bars – WEAU

“It is certainly a population that is getting this illness and likes to socially gather in close distance with other individuals,” Boerner says.
The health department is motivating those who do pick to go out in public at locations like restaurants and bars to keep social distance, wash hands regularly and stay at home if you feel ill.
“While this infection remains in the neighborhood we require to do our part to keep our loved ones safe,” Boerner says.
If you have actually visited these facilities throughout these times and are experiencing COVID-19 signs, the county recommends to get evaluated for COVID-19.

” Every time we have a potential direct exposure at a place we understand is normally crowded is worrying,” states Audrey Boerner of the Eau Claire City-County Health Department. “If we are not able to keep area in our public settings then we could have more direct exposure and that is something we will enjoy carefully. We have seen it in other communities like La Crosse.”

When there has been a lack of social distancing and every possibly exposed individual can not be identified, the health department prepares to continue notifying the public of possible COVID-19 direct exposures.
Previously this week, the health department reported a potential COVID-19 direct exposure at Olive Garden and Wagners Lanes.
WEAU connected to both The Pickle and She-nannigans for comment however did not hear back. The health department states both areas are abiding by a public health examination and essential cleansing protocol.

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) – The Eau Claire City-County Health Department is signaling the community about a potential COVID-19 direct exposure at 2 Eau Claire County facilities.
Times and places of prospective exposure consist of “The Pickle” on June 19 from 10:30 PM– 12:00 AM and June 20 from 11:30 PM -1:30 AM and “She-nannigans” on June 20 from 12:00 AM– 2:30 AM and June 21 from 1:30 AM– 2:30 AM.
” Every time we have a prospective direct exposure at a location we understand is generally crowded is worrying,” states Audrey Boerner of the Eau Claire City-County Health Department. “If we are not able to keep area in our public settings then we might have more direct exposure and that is something we will see closely. We have seen it in other communities like La Crosse.”
La Crosse County just recently saw a surge in COVID-19 cases in youths after reports of direct exposures at several bars and restaurants. Boerner states the age of people exposed to COVID-19 at locations like The Pickle and She-nannigans is another issue for health authorities as about half of the cases in Eau Claire County are in individuals in the 20 to 40 age range.
