Monroe County health officials are warning travelers of possible exposure to the coronavirus. Officials say a passenger on Delta Flight 4824 from JFK International Airport to Rochester late Saturday afternoon was likely spreading COVID-19 during the flight. The county said it only learned Wednesday evening that the passenger was positive for coronavirus. The man acquired the virus while visiting Italy. He has been under isolation since arrival, and close household contacts have been under self-quarantine. Fellow passengers and people who were in the terminal when the flight landed at 5:55 p.m. Saturday are advised to "monitor for symptoms of fever, cough and shortness of breath." Anyone with those symptoms should immediately call their health-care provider or the county coronavirus hotline at (585) 753-5555.
