More than one attendee of the Oct. 17 cornhole tournament at the Fulton VFW has since tested positive for COVID-19, according to the Callaway County Health Department.

CCHD Executive Director Sharon Lynch confirmed the cases Friday and warned attendees to watch for symptoms.

Common symptoms of COVID-19 include fever and chills, difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, loss of taste or smell, a sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting and diarrhea.

Lynch encouraged anyone who develops symptoms to contact their primary medical provider and request a COVID-19 test. Those who do not have a primary care physician can contact a testing site directly; some have on-call providers who can conduct a remote appointment and order a test.

Several testing options in the region include:

Fulton Medical Center has a drive-thru from 8 a.m.-noon Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday . You must have an order from a doctor. Physicians can fax an order to the hospital at 573-642-6672 or give the patient a written slip to take to the testing site.

 UMC Hospital has drive-thru testing at 600. E. Stadium Blvd. in Columbia. Patients can call 573-884-0948 to be screened if they do not have a written doctor's note.
