Possible COVID-19 Exposure Wood County Establishment Hollyrocks

Wisconsin Rapids, WI – The Wood County Health Department has received notification that an individual who tested positive for COVID-19 was at Hollyrocks in Wisconsin Rapids during the infectious period of the illness. Hollyrocks is currently closed. County health officials are working to determine how the individual may have become infected and are contacting others with whom the person with the positive result had close contact. 

Patrons who were at Hollyrocks during the following days and times may have been exposed to COVID-19.

  • 7/21 from 3PM-9:45PM
  • 7/22 from 11AM-2:30PM
  • 7/23 from 5:30PM-10PM

Once a person tests positive for COVID-19 contact tracing begins. When it is not possible to specifically identify contacts from an exposure during which adequate physical distancing of at least 6 feet was not maintained, a press release will be issued to allow the public to better know their potential exposure risk.

The Wood County Health Department is encouraging anyone who was present on these dates to monitor for symptoms for a period of 14 days from their last visit to Hollyrocks. Symptoms may include fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, headache, fatigue, body and muscle aches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of smell, and loss of taste. In the event that symptoms do develop, please contact your health care provider for testing. If you think you were exposed at this establishment during this time, and have questions, call the Wood County Health Department at 715-421-8911 for further direction. 

“The community’s health and safety is our number one priority,” states Sue Kunferman, Wood County Health Officer. “We are releasing this information due to the inability to identify all possible contacts who may have been exposed to the person who has tested positive during their infectious period.

Our best public health advice to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is to continue physical distancing of at least 6 feet, wear a mask when in public and unable to physical distance, avoid large gatherings, and stay home if you are feeling sick or were in contact of someone who has been sick.
