CUPHD Confirmed First COVID-19 Cases in Sevier County
Richfield, UT April 15, 2020 – The Central Utah Public Health Department (CUPHD) has confirmed the first two positive cases of COVID-19 in Sevier County. These are the seventh and eighth confirmed cases in the Central Utah Health District.
Both cases are between the ages of 25-45, and are currently recovering at their home in Sevier County. These cases were contracted from exposure to an individual from outside the district who later was confirmed to have COVID-19. “These positive cases followed all of the proper procedures in notifying the Health Department and their medical provider early on, and then self-quarantining. This significantly reduced potential exposures to other individuals in the community,” said Nate Selin, CUPHD’s Health Officer.
