The St. Clair County Health Department has been notified of a second presumptive positive case of COVID-19. The case is a female household contact of the first identified case. The individual did take appropriate precautions and had minimal interaction with the community. The case is continuing to be investigated by the Health Department.
Dr. Annette Mercatante states, “If you feel well, you do not need to be tested. Mildly ill people should be encouraged to stay home and contact their healthcare provider by phone for clinical guidance. Testing will be determined based on risk assessment. I encourage our community to remain calm, be educated, and practice prevention strategies. Working together will help slow down the spread in our community.”
