Two Lassen County Residents Test Positive for COVID-19

Saturday, May 23rd, 2020

The Lassen County Public Health Department is reporting that they have identified two individuals from the same household who have tested positive for COVID-19. These individuals were immediately placed on quarantine and tested locally.

Close contacts of the two individuals are being notified to quarantine for 14 days.

“Lassen County Public Health is working closely with local community partners to reduce the spread of COVID-19,” the agency said in a statement Friday evening. “It is our priority to protect the privacy of the individuals during this time of illness.”

What does it mean to be a “close contact” of a person with or likely to have COVID-19?

1. Were within 6 feet of person who has or is likely to have COVID-19 for more than ten minutes.

2. Had unprotected contact with the body fluids and/or secretions (such as being coughed on/sneezed on, shared utensils or salvia or provided care without wearing protective equipment) of a person who has or is likely to have COVID-19.
