Another COVID-19 case confirmed in Clark County

By , Columbian Editor

A Sunday morning update from Clark County Public Health shows a 10th local person has been confirmed to be suffering from COVID-19, the novel coronavirus.

The patient is a man in his 70s who has had contact with one of the nine other confirmed local cases. He has been quarantined, and is recovering at home.

So far, 10 people locally have been confirmed to have the virus. Three have died. In addition, another 219 local tests have returned negative for COVID-19,

Although the number appears to be very low, health authorities believe that many more people are suffering from the disease, but have not been able to be tested due to the high volume of requests. Social isolation remains a best practice. Stay at least six feet away from people, even in parks and on trails, and avoid congregating in groups. Wash your hands frequently and well.
