Sullivan County Public Health Director Nancy McGraw announced today that two new cases novel coronavirus have been confirmed in Sullivan County, bringing the total COVID-19 infections in the county to three.

“Two more people in Sullivan County tested positive today,” McGraw said. “They have been self-isolating, and we are in the midst of determining if there were any additional exposures.”

On Monday, McGraw announced the first case of novel coronavirus was confirmed at the County-owned and operated Care Center at Sunset Lake in Liberty.

“These new cases are unrelated to the first case which appeared in a worker at our Care Center at Sunset Lake, and they are not county employees,” County Manager Joshua Potosek stated. “We are not allowed by law to identify the individuals, but we will keep the public as informed and as safe as possible as the investigation continues.”
