Thursday’s positive case was originally suspected of being a person who had worked at the Alder Bay assisted living facility. Upon further investigation, this turned out to be inaccurate. We regret the error.
There are four new cases today. Two reside in Alder Bay, one is in contact with another known case and the fourth is under investigation.
