Two women in their 20’s are the latest Mason County residents to test positive for conoravirus (COVID-19). Mason County Public Health reported Thursday, June 25, 2020 that both women are asymptomatic and direct contacts to an outbreak in another county. The county was not identified. Contact interviews are continuing and the patients are currently isolating at home.
These latest positive tests brings the total of COVID-19 cases in Mason County to 46 and increases the number of active cases to six.
Due to Mason County being a small community, location data of positive cases will not be released to reduce the possibility of patient identification and to protect personal health information. Identified positive cases are located throughout Mason County. Mason County Public Health is asking that the public do their part to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. This includes staying at least six feet from others and wearing face coverings.
