The Dade County Health Department reports two more laboratory confirmed case of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in a Dade County; which brings our total positives to six. They are both currently isolated at home, and the Health Department will call any close contacts that may have been exposed to the virus and will provide them with guidance on how to monitor for symptoms and quarantine if needed.

COVID-19 is spread through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It spreads between people who are in close contact with one another. 

“As a community, we must continue working hard at staying home, wearing masks, and keeping a physical distance from others," said Pamela Allen, DCHD adminstrator.

She adds, “It is very important for anyone who is sick to stay home, away from other people, to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We must each do our part to protect everyone in our community.”
