Marcellus, N.Y. — People who went to a Marcellus pumpkin patch Saturday may have been exposed to the novel coronavirus, according to the Onondaga County Health Department.
A person who took a hayride at Tim’s Pumpkin Patch, located at 2901 Rose Hill Road, tested positive for Covid-19, officials said. The hayride took place from 4:45 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, according to officials.
The person who tested positive was wearing a mask on the hayride, though people sat close together, which officials say raises the risk of exposure.
Health department investigators are trying to identify the close contacts of the person on the hayride.
Those who may have been exposed should monitor themselves for symptoms of coronavirus for 14 days from the date of potential exposure. People who develop symptoms should call a doctor.
