The third case happened at the YMCA Food & Fun Program on Dodson Avenue.

The final case happened at Chattanooga’s City Hall.

There was a potential exposure at the Mayor’s Council for Women in the Veranda Room of City Hall.

That happened on August 6th at 12PM.

“These are known exposures; reasonably, there are many of which we have not been notified,” says Hamilton County Health Department Epidemiology Manager Bev Fulbright.

“At this time, if you have been in a large group of people, you have likely come into contact with a COVID-positive person.”
