Three additional presumptive cases of coronavirus confirmed in Delaware
DOVER, Del. – The Delaware Division of Public Health has announced three more presumptive positive cases of coronavirus in the state.
We’re told that all three are under the age of 30 and are associated with the University of Delaware community. The individuals are not severely ill and are currently self-isolated at home.
Officials also say the individuals were exposed to the same confirmed case in another state as the first Delaware case, announced on Wednesday.
The Division of Public Health has issued the following guidance for the University of Delaware community:
- Close contacts of these individuals, whether or not they have symptoms of illness including fever, cough, or shortness of breath, may return home during University of Delaware’s spring break. These individuals are not allowed to use public transportation to get home, and they will need to stay home for at least 14 days after last contact with positive cases.
- Individuals who did not have contact with these individuals can return home and go about their daily lives. They should self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19, and contact their primary care provider if symptoms appear.
