THIRD EMPLOYEE TESTS POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS

25-Nov-2020

On November 24, 2020, a third Plumas District Hospital (PDH) employee tested positive for Covid-19.

Plumas District Hospital last night received notice that a member of the Rural Health Clinic staff tested positive for Covid-19. The staff member is not experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19 and is quarantining in their home. Immediate close contacts with potential for exposure have been identified to undergo testing.

The case was identified through PDH’s internal contact tracing for employees and physicians. Speedy in-house diagnostics provided the positive result within 90 minutes, at which time the employee was notified and promptly left the hospital campus, thereby limiting potential exposure to other staff and patients.
