ELLICOTTVILLE — Health officials in Cattaraugus County are warning those who visited Holimont Ski Resort in Ellicottville early this month, may have been exposed to COVID-19, the novel Coronavirus.

The Cattaraugus County Health Department says a woman from Essex County visited the resort between March 3 and 8.

During her visit, she did not exhibit symptoms of the virus, but they began to show days later, on March 12.

Anyone who was in the vicinity of the U14 Race, or the resort, in general, on those days, may have been exposed to the virus.

Those who experience symptoms like coughing, shortness of breath or a fever should monitor themselves.

If the symptoms do not appear by March 22, you were likely not exposed.

An update from county officials earlier this week reported around a dozen residents of the county are in some type of quarantine as officials await novel Coronavirus test results.
