Been to a Bar in Portsmouth? You May Have Been Exposed to COVID-19
The Department of Health and Human Services tells WMUR.com that a person has been confirmed COVID-19 positive and may have exposed patrons at Jumpin’ Jay Fish Café.
The Department of Health and Human Services has listed the times that persons in the bar may have been exposed, per the news station, and they are as follows:

Contact tracing has already begun and DHHS has already contacted most of those close to the person that tested positive, according to WMUR, but they are telling those that have been at the bar during the above reported times to contact DHHS at 603-271-4496 so contact tracing can be completed.
The officials at the Health Department said the restaurant is being very cooperative in assisting the contact tracers to find anyone that may have been exposed.
Jumpin’ Jay Fish Café is closed temporarily for deep, professional cleaning and will reopen only when the Department of Health and Human Services officials deem it safe, according to the news station.
The restaurant posted on its website: “Please know that we have met or exceeded state and CDC guidelines in our quick and independent decision to close, test, and quarantine as the safety of our staff and guests is our top priority.”
It certainly looks like Jumpin’ Jay Fish Café has done everything right and by the book, but the chance is always out there. Stay safe and don't let your guard down!
