Two new cases of COVID-19 confirmed by the Livingston County Health Center brings the county’s total to 10.
Ann Burchett from the health center says the two additional positive cases of COVID-19 were identified through the Health Center’s Curbside Testing event last week. Both individuals are asymptomatic and reside in separate households. Their close contacts are being notified, and they will be isolating at home for at least 14 days.
To date, 121 testing results from the event have been received with 18 still pending. Those tested are being contacted by phone with their results. If you were tested and haven’t gotten a call, the health center’s Communicable Disease Coordinator should be in contact soon.
The Health Center is considering offering more opportunities to be tested for active COVID-19 (PCR) and Serology (antibody) testing. If you would like to weigh-in, visit Livingston County Health Center on Facebook and take the survey.
The health center urges the public to continue to take appropriate precautions including good hygiene, social distancing and limiting in-person interactions. If you are sick, particularly with a fever and a cough, or shortness of breath, stay home and contact your health care provider or urgent care center for guidance regarding symptoms and next steps.
