County reports 38th case of COVID-19

Posted

The Person County Health Department reported its 38th case of COVID-19 Tuesday afternoon.
Of that total, seven are being monitored at home.
The latest case follows a Sunday report of three additional cases – the second highest number of cases reported in a single day since the coronavirus made its first appearance in Person County on March 24.
Based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance, 30 people have been released from isolation.
The CDC guidelines state that an individual can discontinue isolation if at least three days have passed since recovery, which is defined as the resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications, and improvement in respiratory symptoms such as cough and shortness of breath and at least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared.
Using a test-based strategy, CDC guidelines state that an individual can discontinue isolation under the same three-day passage since the resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications, and improvement in respiratory symptoms such as cough and shortness of breath and negative results of at least two consecutive tests collected at least 24 hours apart.
There has been one death in Person County.
