The Taney County Health Department (TCHD) announced Thursday that one of the COVID-19 cases attributed to the county is actually for a resident of a different county.
TCHD officials said they had conducted an investigation into a reported eighth case only to find the primary residence of the person was not a Taney County address.
“Taney County is currently at seven confirmed cases, including one death, and one recovered from COVID-19,” Lisa Marshall Director of TCHD said in a statement. “We want to let the community know that the Communicable Disease Team is working hard to investigate each case and provide as much information as they are legally able.”
TCHD officials also thanked the community in their press release, noting they have seen a positive response from the community to physical distancing guidelines and good hygiene practices.
