In New York, Sullivan County health officials say two patrons who were at a bar over the weekend have tested positive for COVID-19.

Sullivan County Public Health Services is alerting anyone who visited Nelly’s Sports Bar at 456 Broadway in Monticello on Saturday that they may have been exposed to the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, and to contact Public Health Services at 845-292-5910. Two people who were at the bar on the night of August 15 have tested positive, and another person is hospitalized and presumed to be positive pending test results. Health officials say that as far as they can determine, few or no individuals were wearing masks or social distancing at the sports bar that evening. Public Health Director Nancy McGraw says the number of active cases in Sullivan is slowly climbing, after having been in the single digits for several weeks.
