BRHD Announces 24 Confirmed Coronavirus Cases

Bear River Health Department

The Bear River Health Department confirmed eight new cases coronavirus cases and up to 56 potential cases in a press release today. The release states one of the confirmed cases was a healthcare provider from a small family practice, and through tracing exposure, 10 symptomatic individuals were identified with the other 46 being asked to quarantine as a precaution.

Lloyd Berentzen, the Executive Director of the department, said the potential cases highlight the importance of staying home if you feel sick, adding “One person not staying home while sick has resulted in more than 50 people quarantined.”
