Washington County Health Department Administrator Elizabeth Lehde announced Thursday morning that a case that had been previously reported positive for COVID-19 has been transferred to another county.
The news of the transfers comes on the same day that a previously positive case was released from isolation precautions.
To date, there have been 453 negative results that have been reported to the department.
The summary of our nineteen (19) confirmed cases are:
19 released from isolation
Illinois Department of Public Health is posting number of cases by zip code for those having more than five (5) cases. This information, as well as case and test counts, can be found at http://dph.illinois.gov/covid19/covid19-statistics.
If a county resident is contacted by the health department, they are asked to return calls quickly. The health department is working hard to identify those at risk and to reduce the spread of COVID-19. These tracking practices help public health officials determine when, where, how, and who is most at risk of transmitting and contracting Coronavirus. As we move forward in resuming activities, this information will be more important than ever to understand what will be safe to do and what puts us most at risk.
