The Alachua County Supervisor of Elections was notified today at about 3:30 p.m. by a Florida Department of Health contact tracer.
Officials from the Department of Health stated that voters who visited the polling place are at minimal risk of contracting the virus because of physical distancing, sanitation procedures, and the brief contact.

Those who worked closely with the individual — defined as those who were in close proximity of the individual for more than 15 minutes throughout the day — have been advised to self quarantine for 14 days, following guidance from the Florida Department of Health.
