A Bourbon County, KS positive COVID-19 test was confirmed this afternoon. The testing was confirmed through an out of state reference laboratory that was used on the symptomatic individual. This individual and family have been out of state near two weeks and will remain out of state until their isolation and quarantine time is complete. For this reason, we believe there is low risk of exposure for Bourbon County residents. The Bourbon County Public Health Department is working diligently to complete the investigation.
The Bourbon County Public Health Department urges the public to continue to take appropriate actions. Individuals should continue to practice social distancing, clean/disinfect any high touched surfaces, wash their hands with soap and water routinely, use hand sanitizer if soap and water is not available and avoid touching your face (especially eyes, nose & mouth).
