Pine Mountain Club, CA (Tuesday, Nov. 10 at 7:20 p.m.)— The Mountain Enterprise has spoken directly to a person who worked at the Pine Mountain Club polling place on Tuesday, Nov. 3, then received a positive covid-19 test result on Monday, Nov. 9. More details are available in The Mountain Enterprise this week (on newsstands now).
The longtime PMC resident wore a mask Tuesday, Nov. 3 while working at the polling place in the Pine Mountain Christian Community Church Annex.

Incubation time for the virus is typically 3 to 14 days. Symptoms typically arise within four to five days after exposure. A person may be contagious two to three days prior to showing symptoms, according to Harvard Medical Center’s Covid-19 Resource Center.
What is the best advice to anyone who feels they may have been exposed? Relax and go get tested. Alert those with whom you have come into contact and suggest they go for tests also. Wear a mask. Wash your hands frequently. Stay isolated until you have your test results back.
