FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Three confirmed cases of COVID-19 now in Curry County. As of late this evening, Curry County Public Health has received information through Coos County Public Health of two Curry County residents who were tested for the COVID-19 virus. The tests were performed in Coos County and those tests were confirmed positive today for the Corona Virus (COVID-19). The two individuals have been self-isolating.
Also this afternoon, Curry General Hospital notified Curry County Public Health of another confirmed COVID-19 case of a Curry County resident who has also been self-isolating. This is unrelated to the first two cases.
Curry County Public Health has been in contact with all three individuals who are apparently symptom free at this time and will monitor them on a daily basis. The Oregon State Health Authority has been notified as well and will be assisting Curry County with information and direction.
It is imperative that we all follow the OHA, CDC and Governor’s guidelines about social distancing, protecting yourselves and staying home to slow the spread and save lives.
It is important to note that other than from OHA and CDC, press releases from the Curry County Public Health Administrator have the most accurate information. Information put out by other individuals in Curry County on COVID-19 without the Public Health Administrator’s input may not have the most accurate up-to-date information.
Curry County Public Health will continue to keep the public informed with all the information we can in order to keep our citizens safe.
