CORONAVIRUS: One new Lyon County case connected to original pair Lyon County Public Health logo

Lyon County's COVID-19 caseload is increasing.

On KVOE's On-Air Chat on Wednesday, Lyon County Public Health Officer Renee Hively announced three confirmed cases and a presumed positive case. 

Emergency Preparedness Director Jennifer Millbern says the presumed positive case is related to the original two cases. The fourth patient is unrelated. Public Health has not offered further details with the new information under investigation.

Regardless of the leak, no additional isolation or quarantines were needed because of how testing samples are packed. Further details are not being released.

Lyon County's first two cases were announced on March 21. Both of those patients had traveled and were connected, according to Lyon County Public Health officials, but those connections and travel locations were not divulged.

Currently, Morris County has two confirmed cases. No other area counties have confirmed or presumed positive cases at this time.
