After several days of no new confirmed COVID-19 cases in Clay County, County Public Health Nurse Kim Hyatt advised Thursday that 14 cases have been confirmed, with 130 tests performed overall.

The good news Hyatt said, is the recovery rate.

Of the 14 current confirmed cases reported, two remain hospitalized, with six still recovering in self-isolation at home, and six patients have recovered.

No additional information is available due to the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

On March 28, the first case of COVID 19 was announced in Clay County.

“If people continue to stay home and follow the safe handwashing and social distancing techniques, health officials will get a handle on this,” Hyatt said.
