ST CHARLES, Mo. — The St. Charles County Public Health Department sent two new COVID-19 tests to the state lab, the county announced Friday. Both are travel-related.
A 34-year-old man, who traveled to France, has been tested.
The other person who was tested is a 41-year-old woman, who was in another state when she was in contact with someone who tested positive for the virus.
Both are self-quarantined.
St. Charles County launched a website that keeps track of coronavirus cases in the area.
The site lists the number of:
- people who are currently being monitored
- people who have completed the monitoring period
- tests pending at the Missouri State Public Health Lab
- negative tests
- presumptive positive tests
St. Charles County activated its Incident Command Center after learning of the woman in St. Louis County, who tested positive. The Centers for Disease Control has since confirmed the positive diagnosis.
"Staff from multiple disciplines are working together in one location to constantly monitor for cases in our area and are following protocol developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention," according to the site.
