Your Central Valley
A Madera County couple who returned from a recent cruise have been reported to be the Central Valley’s first confirmed case of coronavirus, according to the Madera County Department of Public Health.
Madera County health officials said Saturday that they first received word about the cases after state health officials told them to begin monitoring a husband and wife returning from a recent Princess Cruise, said Sara Bosse, Public Health Director.
The couple remained isolated in their Madera County home.
Bosse said health officials coordinated with Madera Community Hospital for medical care and testing after one of the individuals developed symptoms.
