The Concord Board of Health was recently informed that a number of staff at two Concord restaurants have tested positive for COVID-19 and were potentially infectious while working at the restaurants. Persons who ate at or purchased take-out food at these restaurants are being advised they may have been exposed COVID-19 if they visited these restaurants on the following dates:
Fiorella’s, 24 Walden St., Concord. Dates: November 23-27, 2020.
Sorrento’s Pizzeria, 58 Thoreau St., Concord. Dates: November 21-29, 2020.
Guidance from the Board of Health if you visited Fiorella's or Sorrento's Pizzeria during the aforementioned dates is as follows:
It has been determined that there is no immediate need for people who visited during the above dates needs to be tested, quarantine, or do anything other than be alert for possible symptoms.
The duration of time since the last day of the reported exposure has been long enough, 10-12 days, that the risk is low for people who visited to now begin showing symptoms. People who contract COVID-19 typically begin to show symptoms 4-6 days after exposure. People who visited either restaurant during the dates listed above should be watchful for symptoms for 14 days after their date of exposure, although their risk of infection from this exposure is now low.
If people are symptomatic, they must be following COVID-19 protocol and isolate themselves at home.
If people who visited Fiorella’s during the 23rd-27th or Sorrento’s Pizzeria from the 21st -29th timeframe are concerned, we suggest they get tested, especially if they are experiencing symptoms.
This is a difficult time for Concord as it is for towns and cities across the State. We want to remind everyone that our community and our own personal safety against COVID-19 is a group effort. Join us in continuing to be vigilant and taking COVID-19 precautions as outlined by the State Department of Public Health, staying home when possible, wearing a mask in public, avoiding gatherings, and washing hands.
