An employee working multiple shifts on April 1 and 2nd may have had contact with the public.  

The Health Department asks anyone who had close contact (within 6 feet) with any employee of the store on those days to call their primary health care provider.

The Public Health Department says residents can seek testing at the Cayuga Medical Center ONLY if they have symptoms. Pre-register online at or by calling (607) 319-5708 if they don’t have internet.

People who do not have symptoms are being told to self-quarantine at home for 14 days from the last date you shopped at the Family Dollar; however, you must contact Tioga County Public Health for an official order at (607) 687-8600.

Family Dollar has been directed by their Corporate Office to close for 14 days.
