CONCORD, NH (AP) – A person who tested positive for COVID-19 may have exposed patrons sitting at a bar in a restaurant in Portsmouth, the Ministry of Health and Humanitarian Services in New Hampshire said.
Anyone who visited Jumpin ‘Jay’s Fish and sat at the bar between Sept. 30 and Oct. 4 may have been discovered, the agency said in a news release Sunday.
The department said it had investigated contacts and notified some close contacts. He decided to inform the public, saying there may be other people who have been exposed.
The restaurant announced on October 7 that it was closing voluntarily temporarily as a precaution.
“Please be aware that we have complied with or exceeded state and CDC guidelines in our prompt and independent closure, testing and quarantine decision, as the safety of our staff and guests is our top priority,”
