The Health Department is now in the process of working with the patient to identify any contacts who have had close contact.
This new case is a close contact of a previously confirmed case.
The eighth case comes after the Health Department earlier in the day said one of the cases initially credited to Christian County was actually under the jurisdiction of the SGCHD.
The health department is continuing to provide updates on their official Coronavirus Information website.
