Posted Apr 02, 2020 4:30 PM

SALINA —A fourth positive case of coronavirus has been confirmed in Saline County, according to a statement from the Saline County Health Department.

The case was identified through testing sent to a private lab.

The case is a man in his 30’s. This case is not associated with known close contacts or travel to hot spot areas. Due to HIPAA, no other patient information will be released. The individual is self-quarantined at home.

The Saline County Health Department is working to identify any close contacts of the individual.

Those that were exposed will be contacted by the Saline County Health Department as soon as possible.

Due to the rapid increase of positive cases across the State, we will not be issuing separate press releases for additional cases in Saline County. That information will be included in our daily press releases from now on.

As stated many times before, this is a rapidly changing situation. Governor Kelly’s Stay-at-Home Order is in effect until April 19th. Our local government leaders are working hard and are making difficult decisions as it relates to the best interests of the health and safety of our citizens and employees.
