MCDH urging people who visited Marengo business in May to quarantine
McHENRY COUNTY — Anyone who visited Niko’s R & R Supper Club, 7509 S. Grant Highway in Marengo, from May 14 to May 22 is urged to quarantine after a preliminary investigation has determined that people who visited the facility during those dates may have been exposed to COVID-19.
A complaint received by the McHenry County Department of Health (MCDH) on June 1 indicated that there was a potential exposure at a large event held on May 22 at the facility.
Upon further investigation, MCDH confirmed that individuals who were at the establishment on or after May 14 until May 22 had tested positive for the virus.
Those who were at the facility on May 22 should quarantine themselves until June 5 unless they develop symptoms.
People who visited the business and either has symptoms or begin to develop symptoms should be tested and isolate themselves from other people in their home to avoid spreading the virus.
MCDH is working with the facility to ensure that the appropriate protocols are in place so that there will be no further risk to the staff or the general public.

“If anyone begins to develop symptoms such as a cough, fever or chills, headache, new loss of taste or smell or muscle aches, please isolate and have yourself tested.”
