Employee At Bags Tournament During Chillifest Tests Positive For COVID

An employee of the Capital City Cornhole company which organized the Chillifest bags tournament has COVID-19. The tournament was a three-day event that featured 4 tournaments total throughout the weekend. This included two tournaments at Chillifest, one at the American Legion, and one at Mity’s Pub. According to the Chris-Mont EMA, there were two hundred and thirty participants registered for the events along with numerous observers in attendance. Anyone that was at the event is at risk for exposure.


Continue to monitor your health for fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Symptoms that may appear 2-14 days after exposure include fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, and new loss of taste or smell.


Due to the mass amount of people at a large gathering, it is not possible to contact trace, so Chris-Mont EMA encourages all participants and observers to self-monitor for symptoms. Chris-Mont EMA also encourages you to wait to be tested if you are not showing symptoms. Waiting 5-7 days from your last date of exposure allows for an incubation period of COVID and if you test sooner than 5 days you may test negative despite having the virus.


Continue to social distance, wear masks to protect others, and wash your hands. For more information contact the Chris-Mont EMA at 532-9560 or the Christian County Health Department at 824-4113.
