The Taney County Health Department in a Press Release Thursday afternoon corrects the number of positive COVID-19 Cases for the County.
One of the individuals included in the release of two additional positive cases on Monday lives at a Primary Residence in a different county and is included in that county’s total.
The County of residence for that individual is not included in the information released from TCHD however a release from the Stone County Health Department indicated that they had a person with an address in Stone County who had tested positive but has not been in the county in the last five weeks. That brings the total of Stone County positives to four.
No information in either release indicates whether that is the same individual or if the two reports are unrelated.
Both releases remind people to continue following the Guidelines laid out by the Health Departments and other agencies to help contain the COVID-19 Virus.
