A pair of employees at a Sullivan County dollar store have tested positive for COVID-19 and could have exposed other employees or customers.

Sullivan County Public Health Services Director Nancy McGraw announced that two employees at the Dollar General on Glen Wild Road in Rock Hill have tested positive, prompting officials to begin contact tracing to determine who may have been exposed.

Anyone who was at Dollar General between Sunday, Nov. 15 and Wednesday, Nov. 18 could potentially be infected.

“Both employees and customers may have been exposed to COVID-19,” McGraw said. “If someone thinks they have been exposed and develops symptoms, they should self-quarantine for 14 days and call their healthcare provider, or call Sullivan County Public Health Services at (845) 292-5910.”

McGraw made note that contact tracing is ongoing, and anyone who tests positive will be placed in mandatory isolation. Anyone who may have been exposed will be notified by health officials.
